Over 300 mourn higher education 

Senator: 'I'm sorry that you have to come and beg for this' 

Staff Writer 

Students and faculty from univer- 
sities across the state were among the 
mourners at a "funeral rally" for 
higher education on June 1 9. Held on 
the steps of the Louisiana State Capi- 
tol, the marchers protested for in- 
creased funding in higher education. 

"I'm sorry that you have to come 
here and beg for this," said Senator 
J.E. Jumonville, D-Ventress, as he 
addressed more than 300 students 
who had braved 100-degree weather 
to attend the rally. "You should not 
have to come and ask me to vote for 
taxes; you shcfuld be assured you're 
going to be funded without taxes." 

The rally began at 1 p.m. with a 
march from the Huey P. Long statue 

to the capitol steps. The Louisiana 
State University Jazz Band played 
"Every Man a King," Long's theme 
song, as the procession moved to- 
ward the speakers' platform. Shouts 
of "Support Higher Education" and 
"Stop Faculty Flight" rang out from 
the crowd. 

Robert Styron, president of the 
University of New Orleans' Student 
Government Association, began the 
already-heated agenda by screaming, 
"What do we need?" 

"Money," chorused the crowd. 

"When do we need it?" shouted 


Representatives from UNO, 
Delgado Community College, Gram- 
bling S tate University, McNeese State 

University, LSU-Baton Rouge, Uni- 
versity of Southwestern Louisiana, 
Southeastern Louisiana University, 
LSU-Shreveport, Southern Univer- 
sity, and Louisiana Tech were in at- 
tendance demanding more money

Six students represented North- 
western: Kate Nance, Charlotte 
Holmes, Michael McMahon, Student 
Government Association Senators- 
at-Large Lisa Simms and Brent 
Cockrell, and SGA President Sarah 
Robinson. Cockrell said, "I think we 
really showed the legislature and Gov- 
ernor Roemer that we are serious 
about higher education and that the 
state's universities will no longer 
accept excuses."

Freshmen make connections 

Incoming students gain registration advantages 

Staff Writer 

Almost 300 new freshmen at- 
tended the first Freshman Connec- 
tion which began Monday and ends 
today. With the three scheduled for 
this summer, the first session that 
began yesterday will set groundwork 
for the upcoming ones. 

Planning for Freshman Connec- 
tion has taken several months to cre- 
ate and fine tune a program that will 
be informative yet brief. Each ses- 
sion is planned to register and orient 
approximately 300 freshman for the 
fall. With close to that number at- 
tending today and Monday, the Fresh- 
man Connection Student Orientation 
Directors have been preparing to meet 
with their groups since the spring 
semester. "It is a wonderful program, 
and I am happy that I am able to assist 
the incoming students and make them 
feel at home," said Student Orienta- 
tion Director Lisa Simms from 

Monday morning was the final 
proving ground to actually see if all 

the hard work had paid off. With 
parents and students arriving at 8 that 
morning, it was obvious that they 
were excited about Northwestern. 
Sonya Nolley, a incoming freshman 
from Natchitoches, said, "This is a 
really great way to meet people and 
have an advantage over other stu- 
dents who have not registered." One 
of the much awaited activities that 
allowed freshman to meet their fel- 
low classmates was the dinner and 
dance that night in the Student Union 

Throughout the entire two days, 
freshman will be able to register for 
classes, take campus tours (so they 
won't walk to the library looking for 
the post office), and meet with and 
talk to their advisors in each individ- 
ual department and/or major. The 
main goal for today's activities is to 
register incoming freshman and in- 
form students of how registration 
procedures work. One visiting parent 
commented that she "enjoyed Natchi- 
toches and the hospitality of all the 
Northwestern staff and Freshman 

Connection Directors." 

Another important event that takes 
place today is the "Freshman Con- 
nection Activities Expo." This pro- 
gram was established by Freshman 
Connection coordinator Gail Jones 
to provide the incoming students with 
an insight into the different activities 
that take place on campus. Most 
campus organizations will be repre- 
sented at the expo, and each will 
provide information for students 
ranging from the ROTC program here 
at Northwestern to the Student Ac- 
tivities Board to the Potpourri, the 
university yearbook. The entire ex- 
perience could be called "Introduc- 
tion to Northwestern 1010: A Crash 

The first program lasts through 
today. The dates for following ses- 
sions are: July 16-17, July 30-31 and 
Freshman Connection Student Ori- 
entation Directors will be on hand to 
advise and help freshman during 
regular registration which is August 
27-28. Classes for the fall start Au- 
gust 29. 

According to LSU Chancellor 
Bud Davis, the hold-up with highei 
education budget committee is "the 
working of internal politics of groups 
with different interests." 

"If you're not for the additional 
taxes, then simply saying you're for 
higher education is not enough," said 
Senator Larry Bankston, D-Baton 
Rouge. "You should not ask legisla- 
tors to simply be for higher educa- 
tion, because everybody can say they 
are for it," he said, adding, "but are 
they willing to be for additional 

Giving out the telephone number 
to the Governor's mansion, Bank- 
ston said, "You tell the governor what 
you want, ask him for the money and 
ask him for his support." 

11th Folk 
July 20-22 

A S29.400 grant from the folk arts 
division of the National Endowment 
for the Arts has been donated to the 
Louisiana Folklife Center at North- 
western to help sponsor the 11th 
annual Natchitoches-NSU Folk Fes- 
tival July 20-22 that will celebrate 
the American Indian Tribes of the 
Red River Valley and their neigh- 

The festival, which has been hon- 
ored twice in the past 10 years by the 
Southeastern Tourism Society as one 
of the top 20 events in July, will 
feature four sessions in Prather Coli- 
seum; nighttime music shows Friday 
and Saturday from 8 p.m. to midnight 
and daytime programs Saturday and 
Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 

"This year," said Dr. Donald W. 
Hatley, Northwestern English pro- 
fessor and director of the Louisiana 
Folklife Center, "the festival will 
present what some folklorists have 
called one of the best-kept secrets in 
America — the Indians of the South- 
eastern United States." 

After 450 years of Indian contact 
with Europeans in the vicinity, it 
seems only appropriate that South- 
eastern tribes be honoredand invited 
back. This will be a three-day home- 
coming for native Americans to a 
place that has figured prominently in 
their history. 

Caddo, Choctaw, Creek, Houma, 
Seminole, Cherokee, Yuchi, Koasati, 
Chickasaw, Delaware, Alabama, 
Tunica-Biloxi, Chitimacha, Lumbee 
and many other tribes will bring their 
unique cultures to NSU for this cele- 
bration of Indian life. 

Tribal representatives will prepare 
traditional foods, share their songs, 
dance and music, and demonstrate 
traditional southeastem-style bas- 
ketry, silverwork, woodwork and 
hide-tanning, as well as other crafts. 
Special storytelling sessions, food 
demonstrations, and dance participa- 
tion workshops will also be a part of 
the festival. 

Focal points to be constructed at 
the Folk Festival are ceremonial 
arbors similar to the ones that mark 
place and position, birthright and 
belonging among traditional Chero- 
kee, Yuchi, Creek and Seminole in 
Oklahoma. Because of their native 
religious uses, and because their 
composition is entirely natural, cere- 
monial arbors are often referred to as 
"churches without nails." 

Country music, including Koasati 
and Cherokee fiddlers playing their 
European music and Indian choirs, 
especially Choctaw and Coushatta, 
will be used to show the point- 
counterpoint of acculturation. 

"Emphasis will be on small, inti- 
mate performances on the floor of the 
coliseum, downplaying staging Indi- 
ans in a presidium stage format," said 
Hatley. "People will be brought

Flag burning 

Immoral act protected 
by the First Amendment 

July 4 is next week. On that Independence Day, patriotic spirit will be on 
display in every city in the nation. Parades of red, white and blue will march 
down Main Street to the tune of John Philip Sousa. Fireworks will fill the 
night air with blazing color. Rags will fly. 

And, of course, flags will bum. 

The current issue racing through Congress and throughout the United 
States is about the proposed amendment to the Constitution which would 
make the burning of an American flag a federal crime. Specifically, President 
Bush's amendment states, "The Congress and the states shall have power to 
prohibit the physical desecration of the flag." 

The flag is a powerful symbol of this country. It represents what America 
stands for — freedom, democracy and the pursuit of individual happiness. By 
whatever name we call it — Old Glory, the Stars and Stripes — the flag embod- 
ies the values that we live by. It is what our fathers, our brothers and our sons 
have fought and died for. Every time that flag is raised, the symbol of a free 
nation shines out for the rest of the world to see. 

"We have a God-given right to 
express ourselves in any way we 
see fit. It that means setting fire 
to Old Glory, than so be it." 

Burning the flag is a particularly distasteful act. Setting fire to the symbol 
of America destroys the country 's dreams and aspirations which our founding 
fathers worked so hard to realize. By burning the flag, one shows disrespect 
for the very principles of our freedoms. 

However, if this constitutional amendment were passed, it would bring 
about the first alteration to the Bill of Rights, specifically the First Amend- 
ment, in 199 years. 

Freedom of expression is one the most prized things we have as Ameri- 
cans. It allows us to do anything — from worshiping who or what we choose 
to criticizing the government, we are guaranteed those rights. For anything 
to infringe upon those rights is illegal, immoral and just plain wrong. 

If burning the flag is wrongful, then what about using the flag for other 
purposes? During recent debate in both the House of Representatives and the 
Senate, one Congressman came up with some interesting points — flags are 
used for decorations on paper plates, tablecloths, napkins, streamers, shoes, 
socks, books, posters, and many other everyday items. According to him, if 
you desecrate these flag representations, are you not desecrating the flag 
itself? "If you wipe your dirty mouth with a flag napkin, are you desecrating 
the flag?" To him, burning the flag is no different than staining a flag 

There is a difference, but the fact remains: no matter how indecent the act 
of flag burning is, we cannot allow Congress to infringe upon our Constitu- 
tional rights as Americans. We have the God-given right to express ourselves 
in any way we see fit. If that means setting fire to Old Glory, then so be it 

Speaker of the House Tom Foley, D- Washington, said it best: "We should 
not amend the Constitution of the United States to reach the sparse and 
scattered and despicable conduct of a few who would dishonor the flag and 
defile it." 

Louisiana's colleges 

State universities doing 
better than expected 

It seems to be open season on Louisiana's colleges and universities. You 
name 'em: a good part of the general public, legislators, other office-holders 
both elected and appointed, the news media, educators themselves — there 
appears to be the wide-spread perception that state-supported institutions of 
higher learning are going to hell in a handbasket. 

Despite financial woes shared by practically all state institutions, we 
believe that this is a time for a fair-minded and open view of these same 
college and universities which are talcing a verbal beating at the hands of too 
many critics who simply do not know what the score is. 

We can pick out almost any school at random and point to its recent 
accomplishments, budget constraints notwithstanding. Of course, we can 
start by just looking across the street at our very own Louisiana Scholars' 
College. Established three years ago, LSC attracts the state's brightest 
students in an intense, accelerated liberal arts degree program. This is a good 
example of how our colleges and universities concentrate not only sciences 
or "preparing for a job," but on the humanities as well. 

Northwestern has also received national attention for completing its first 
year as one of only seven universities in America chosen to participate in a 
NASA project developed by NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in 
Huntsville, Ala. 

Who was a recipient of the second Fulbright group project ever to the 

"It appears to be the wide-spread 
perception that state institutions 
of higher learning are going to hell 
in an handbasket." 

Soviet Union, and the first for Louisiana? Grambling University. Another 
first: Grambling is the only school in the country that an accredited doctoral 
degree in Developmental Education. 

Look at Southeastern down in Hammond. SLU was one of only 12 
universities to receive national recognition from the National Endowment for 
the Humanities. Its Industrial Technology program recently won national 
recognition by defeating big-leaguers like Stanford, CalTech and MTT. 

So it is, then, that we believe it is long past due to treat and speak of our 
institutions of higher learning in a more positive fashion. As these few 
examples cited show our colleges are doing exceedingly well.

Just you and me and the coven 

New Kids mania — is it a front for Satanism? 

I've always admired tabloid re- 
porters. Indeed, it is my dream to 
write, unbound by journalistic license, 
something like: "Taxidermist in New 
Jersey Claims Elvis Appeared In His 
Maytag During Rinse Cycle!" 

However, as a responsible jour- 
nalist writing for a respectable news- 
paper, my duty is to inform and edu- 
cate.ever devoted to veracity. Ithere- 
fore feel an urgent obligation to alert 
my audience of what may be the most 
disturbing crisis in popular music 
ever, at least since the breakup of 
Sonny and Cher. 

While all of pre-pubescent female 
America swoons to the ditties of 
Danny , Donnie, Joe, Jon, and Jordan, 
virtually no one is aware of the im- 
pending moral dilemma that these 
Newt-ish Kids impose. Known and 
loved by hundreds of millions, espe- 
cially in Natchitoches, as the New 
Kids On the Block, few are conscious 
of their alter lives as devil worship- 
ers. Until now it has been a well 
guarded secret that the name New 
Kids on the Block is merely an ana- 
gram for their darker purpose: Neo- 
phytes for Knightly Obedience To 

For the reticent reader, or avid fan, 
the evidence against the New Kids is 
staggering. An early song, "Hangin' 
Tough," describes the benefits of 
human sacrifice. "Please Don't Go 
Girl" implies masochistic torture. For 
the still unconvinced, closer analysis

of the lyrics of their current hit "Step 
by Step" reveals unquestionably, the 
group's truer sentiments: 

"Step one: We can have lots of 

"Step two: There's so much we 
can do." The New Kids masterfully 
coax youths with visions of playful 
teen romance, mall dates, and trips to 
the skating rink. Underlying these 
seemingly harmless lyrics, though, 
are their unmentioned antecedents. 
The " much we can do" clearly 
implies such activities as animal 
mutation and human sacrifice, hence 
the "...lots of fun," represents the 
pleasure incurred while performing 
said atrocities. 

"Step three: It's just you and me." 
Originally, I understand, this phrase 
was "It's just you and me and the rest 
of the coven." The word "coven," 
however, refused to rhyme with 
"three" and is thus to blame for the 
subsequent fragment 

"Step four: I can give you more." 
Notice the seductive tone of this 

particular lyric, luring its victim into 
their dark cult ultimately leading to: 

"Step five: Don't you know the 
time has arrived," an enigmatic final 
lyric which has some convinced that 
there are plans in work of a synchro- 
nized interglobal New Kids coup and 
black mass. 

Perhaps you may ask, "How can I 
become a crusader in this moral 
Armageddon?" One's involvement 
in this fight should include an af- 
firmative action boycott of all en- 
dorsed records, tapes, CD's, videos 
(namely The New Kids' Workout), 
apparel, buttons, action figures, and 
other paraphernalia (including the 
rarer New Kids' merchandise: snuff 
boxes, deodorant, cookware, and their 
informative How To book series: 
Home Repair with the New Kids). 

What are the signs that your chil- 
dren may be apostles of these Lucif- 
ers in falsetto? Seduction comes in 
three steps which are relatively easy 
to detect:

'No one 

Nation cannot 

kills for a piece of cloth! 


afford to sacrifice the rights of the people, 


Senior, New Orleans 

Inspired by the excitement in 
Baton Rouge and in Washington , one 
envisions hourly flag burnings in all 
fifty state capitals. Last year, how- 
ever, there were only four flag burn- 
ings reported in America. Four inci- 
dents in a nation of over 200 millions 
seems negligible. 

Our country is facing domestic 
problems that involve not only many 
more people, but also their very lives. 
Americans die because of AIDS, or 
substance abuse, or lack of shelter, or 
lack of food. Crises such as AIDS, 
poverty and addiction pose immedi- 
ate and serious threats to the well- 
being of our nation. We can ill afford 
to donate time and money to outlaw- 
ing flag burning with such urgent 
issues before us. We cannot allow 
the legislature to sacrifice a legiti- 
mate form of protest in order to cover 
up their neglect of the real tragedies 
in America. 

We have no use for politicians 
who waste their time and tax dollars 
on self-serving "patriotic" grand- 

standing. Many of our elected repre- 
sentatives come up for re-election 
soon, in more than a few cases, I see 
someone trying to get votes and keep 
a job. It is perfectly all right to 
proclaim one's love for America, but 
it is not all right to neglect one's 
duties. Something that appears to be 
a non-issue (only four burnings, re- 
member) has turned into a test of 
one's loyalty. 

Just as this nation cannot afford to 
throw away time and money attempt- 
ing to pass a flag burning amend- 
ment, it cannot afford to sacrifice the 
rights of the people. The flag sym- 
bolizes those American ideals of 
justice and liberty for all — it does not 
make them real. Protecting the flag 
(which does not seem to need it) will 
not protect liberty and justice. In 
fact, the flag protection amendment 
assaults those admirable ideals. The 
flag stands for the land of the free, the 
land where people can speak up and 
say what they believe — including 
criticism of the government Being a 
free nation involves dissent among 
members. Do we want to protect a 

symbol of liberty and justice at the 
expense of liberty and justice? 

In many minds, one's stance on 
this issue serves as a test of one's 
patriotism. Thousands and thousands 
of Americans have died for the flag, 
or so I hear. I hope that no one has 
died for the flag. Dying for a red, 
white and blue piece of cloth strikes 
me as a great tragedy. I do not believe 
that we send people into combat to

University of Texas-San Antonio to 
join the Southland Conference," said 
SLC President Michael Abbott. 
"Nicholls and San Antonio are both 

fine institutions with strong commit- 
ments to Division I athletics, and will 
fit well with the current Southland 
Conference membership." 

UT-San Antonio will move to the 
SLC from the Trans America Ath- 
letic Conference (TAAQ. UT-San 
Antonio will participate one last 
season in the TAAC and be ready to 
join the SLC by the 1991-1992 ath- 
letic year. "Our move to the South- 
land next year makes sense for a 
number of reasons, including provid- 
ing a common home for both our 
men's and women's teams while also 

linking us with schools within the 
same geographic proximity," com- 
mented UT-San Antonio Athletic 
Director Bobby Thompson. 

UT-San Antonio has been a 
member of the TAAC for four years 
with only their men's teams partici- 

Nicholls State will transfer into 
the SLC via the independent route. 
Nicholls has previously been a 
member of the Gulf South Confer- 
ence (1972-78), the TAAC (1983- 
84) and the Gulf Star Conference 
(1984-86). After that time they have 

been competing as an athletically 
independent institution. Nicholls 
State is eligible to compete in the 
SLC immediately but both schools 
will begin league competition in 

"The addition of these two fine 
schools helps our conference in a 
number of ways," said SLC Com- 
missioner Don Landry. "This expan- 
sion brings two strong, sports-minded 
media markets to the Southland 
Conference; adding two schools af- 
fords the conference stability in these 
changing times in conference rea- 

lignment; and the new members have 
been strong commitments to their 
athletic programs, which will imme- 
diately strengthen the conference in 
several men's and women's sports." 

Since 1987, the membership of 
the Piano-based Southland Confer- 
ence has been McNeese State Uni- 
versity, the University of North Texas, 
Northeast Louisiana University, 
Northwestern State University, Sam 
Houston S tate University, Southwest 
Texas State University, Stephen F. 
Austin State University and the Uni- 
versity of Texas Arlington.

DCI Summer Music Games set for July 31 


The Drum Corps International 
(DCI) " 1 990 Summer Music Games" 
will include an event atNorthwestern 
State University on July 31, during 
which five of North America's top- 
ranked drum and bugle corps will 
compete in a two-hour sho w at 7 p.m . 
in Turpin Stadium. 

Headlining the event is the Santa 
Clara Vanguard from Santa Clara, 
Calif., which in the summer of 1989 
won its fifth DCI world champion- 
ship in a competition that showcased 
the best drum and bugle corps from 
the U.S. and Canada presenting 
musical productions through the use 
of colors, choreography, props, cos- 
tuming, and intricate drill designs. 

The 128-member Santa Clara 
Vanguard, which won its first DCI 
world championship in 1973 and has 
been a DCI finalist every year since 
1972, is known for its superior brass 
line, impeccable marching, graceful 
color guards and talented percussion 

For the 1990 Summer Music 
Games season, the Santa Clara Van- 
guard will present familiar themes 
from Bizet's beloved opera Carmen. 
The program will examine both por- 
tions of the original opera and ex- 
cerpts from the "Carmen Suite," 
composed by Shchedrian for the 
Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow. 

Other drum and bugle corps per- 

forming in the Northwestern compe- 
tition will be the 128-member Star of 
Indiana from Bloomington, Ind., 
ranked sixth in the world in 1989 and 
a DCI world championship finalist 
since 1985; the 128-member 
Freelancers from Sacramento, Calif., 
who were tenth at last year's DCI 
world championships; the 120- 
member Sky Riders from Hutchin- 
son, Kan., ranked 14th in 1989 and a 
five-time world championship final- 
ist; and the 93-member Glassmen 
from Toledo, Ohio, who finished 23rd 
in the 1989 DCI world standings. 

The competitive 1990 Summer 
Music Games will kick off in July, 
when over 80 drum and bugle corps 

from throughout the United States 
and Canada begin performing across 
North America. 

These groups, led by the top 25 
DCI corps, will compete in any of the 
47 DCI-sanctioned shows, including 
the NSU event sponsored by the 
Department of Creative and Perform- 
ing Arts. 

Scheduled for August 13-18 in 
Buffalo, N.Y., the finals of the world 
championships are broadcast on 
public television and have been fea- 
tured in such publications as Sports 

With a 14 to 21 age range, DCI 
corps are composed of young people 
in junior high, high school and col- 

lege. Such a wide age range is sel- 
dom seen in any other musical youth 

Due to its competitive nature, the 
drum corps is continually experiment- 
ing with new ideas, concepts and 
technique which have made the ac-

11th Folk Festival 
celebrates Indian 
culture, traditions 

■ Continued from page 1 

Louisiana, and the Red River Valley 
in particular, has been influenced by 
these Indian people as well as those 
"removed peoples who eventually 
made their way to Oklahoma at the 
pressure of the United States to move 
west of the Mississippi. 

Natchitoches, which was founded 
as a trading post in 1714 by French- 
Canadian entrepreneur Louis Juch- 
ereau de St. Denis, was once a settle- 
ment where licensed traders traded 
with tribes who had moved to the Red 

So, tribes all along the river joined 
those already used to trading at 
Natchitoches, first for salt then later 
for French goods, and eventually 
Indian people from as far away as 
Mexico passed up and down the 
"Royal Road" as traders. 

According to the festival's direc- 
tor, many elements of contemporary 
southern culture have their roots in 
the ancient traditions of the south- 
eastern Indians, and these connec- 
tions will be explored during the three- 
day event. Also, Anglo-American, 
Afro-America, Cajun and Creole 
groups will perform and demonstrate 
the elements of their cultures that 
handily interface or preserve south- 
em Indian culture. 

"Southern Indians have a mature 
culture which frowns on public dis- 

play, protects its sacred traditions 
and they want only to explain that to 
other cultures," Hatley commented. 
"This festival will incorporate their 
special efforts to avoid trivializing or 
stereotyping their culture. Special 
efforts in staging, explanation, and 
participation will endeavor to bring 
the tribal people and their neighbors 

General admission tickets for each 
of the festival's four sessions are $5 
for adults and $3 for children 12 
years of age and younger. Four- 
session ticket booklet are $16 for 
adults and $10 for children.

Famous fiddler headlines 
annual folklife celebration 

When Cajun fiddler Dewey Balfa 
of Basile comes to Northwestern as a 
headline entertainer for the 11th 
annual Natchitoches-Northwestern 
Folk Festival July 20-22 in Prather 
Coliseum, people from throughout 
the nation will have the opportunity 
to see and hear one of the most re- 
spected folk musicians in America. 

Balfa, along with some of his 
musician friends, is being featured 
on the Louisiana Folklife Center- 
sponsored Festival's Saturday Night 
Music Show, a family-oriented pro- 
gram scheduled from 8 p.m. to mid- 

Balfa, who plays the traditional 
style of French Cajun music, that is 
identified with SouthwestLouisiana, 
was a Grammy Award nominee for 
the 1986 recording of Souvenirs on 
the Swallow label. He has also per- 
formed for the inaugural ceremonies 
for two U.S. presidents. 

A leading musician and spokes- 
man, this innovate master of the fiddle 
was recognized as a model traditional 
master musician with the National 
Endowment for the Arts' Heritage 
Fellowship in 1982. 

Since 1964, when he played the 
Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Is- 
land, Balfa — who at one time headed 
the famous Balfa Brothers Band — 
has been fighting for the preservation 
of Cajun music and culture. 

Dewey Balfa 

He brings his message to those in 
Louisiana, especially schools, as the 
director of the Acadiana Music and 
History Series. 

As a noted musician, Balfa' s fiddle 
technique has been described as clear, 
crisp, melodic, and driving. Each 
note fiddled and sung by Balfa over- 
flows with emotion. His lyrics, like 
his melodies, express the range of 
intense joy and overwhelming per- 
sonal tragedy of his life and culture. 

The Natchitoches-Northwestern 
Folk Festival centers this year on 
Southeastern Indian culture.

The issue is choice 

The Louisiana Legislature is at it again. They've drawn national attention 
to a state already beleaguered by bad press. Our elected officials have recently 
approved the most sweeping anti-abortion laws in the nation, pending 
Governor Buddy Roemer's approval. Chalk up another strike against 


It is incredible to see how our lawmakers work. While the abortion issue 
raged on for the past few weeks, a flag burning bill went through with much 
less public outcry. But a proposal to reduce criminal penalties for battery of 
a flagburner went before the Senate yesterday and, in a bizarre move, 
underwent radical change and emerged as an anti-abortion law. Amazingly, 
the Senate amended out all of the original flag burning provisions and 
amended in the new abortion ban. Only in Louisiana. 

The anti-abortion bill now forbids abortions except in cases of incest and 
rape, provided a rape is reported within seven days. This is ludicrous. Setting 
a time limit upon which a physically and mentally battered woman must 
report her abuse is simply inane— most rape victims are scared and often 
ashamed and consequently do not seek help until much later. The seven-day 
requirement is much too short of a time. 

If the bill is fully approved, hope still rests with the judicial system. 
Louisiana courts have overturned amendments when they do not fit the 
originally stated purposes of the proposed bills. The original flag burning bill 
sought to redefine the crime of battery . The new amendment defines abortion 
as a form of battery, punishable by from one to 10 years in prison and a fine 
of up to $100,000. Again, this is ludicrous. 

Sen. Larry Bankston (D-Baton Rouge) predicts the amendment will be 
ruled unconstitutional by state courts. 'This bill is a hoax," said Bankston. 
Another senator, Sydney Nelson (D-Shreveport), said making the serious 
case of abortion a simple battery crime is "not appropriate." 

'By passing such restrictive 
abortion laws, we are sending a 
message to the rest of the world 
(who, by the way, is watching 
most attentively) that we are a 
state that stifles freedom of 

The architect of this chaos is Rep. Woody Jenkins (D-Baton Rouge). 
Jenkins, who authored the original abortion bill and stands behind the new 
amendments, said yesterday that he would never accept a bill with exceptions. 
"Roemer and the media try to make the issue rape instead of abortion. That's 

not the issue." 

Jenkins is righL That's not the issue. The issue is choice. 

By passing such restrictive abortion laws, we are sending a message to the 
rest of the world (who, by the way, is watching most attentively) that we are 
a state that stifles freedom of choice. It is the woman's right to choose whether 
or not she has an abortion. 

Men cannot understand what a woman goes through when she carries' a 
fetus in her body. True, they take a small part in the proceedings, but men 
cannot comprehend how a woman is affected by that life-to-be inside her. 
Therefore, if she wants or needs an abortion before the first trimester, then it 
is her choice and hers alone. The state should allow her the opportunity to 
exercise that right. 

If this bill is approved by the governor (hopefully not) and makes it through 
the state court system (hopefully not), it will become a test case for the 
landmark Roe vs. Wade abortion rights case. The bill will also proclaim 
loudly that Louisiana is a state where a woman's right to make an important 
choice is denied. As citizens of this state, we cannot allow this to happen. 

Louisiana: You've gone too far, baby. 

Potted products promote pondering* 


Discovering the true origin of 'disheveled harr? 

Perhaps you have referred to 
something as "exciting as potted 
meat." Perhaps you haven't Upon 
hearing this phrase recently, I be- 
came curious. Indeed, how thrilling 
could Spam ever be? Are Vienna 
sausages naturally gregarious, or do 
they have to be coaxed? I therefore 
ventured to the countless grocery 
plazas of Natchitoches to discover 
first hand the often overlooked saga 
of processed meat. 

I immediately discovered that I 
was unqualified to judge the count- 
less products, for I was a stranger in 
a veritable pork product panacea. 
Some of the more interesting goods 
are listed below. 

•Pork (with natural juices). The 
ingredients listed on this product's 
nothing-wasted-on-advertising can 
were: Pork — not less than 99%, 
Other — not more than 1% flavor. 
While its producers are obviously 
astute mathematicians, I'm reticent, 
for it seems that the consumer is 
being a bit cheated on what would 
appear most important: flavor. Then 
again, perhaps it is actually a god- 

•PorkBrains ( in milk gravy). This 
delicacy I understand, was originally 
on the menu at Elysian Fields until 
the gods discovered that they pre- 
ferred ambrosia and honey. Today, 
they can found on aisle five of 
Brookshire's, above the Sweet Sue 
Chicken N' Dumplins and next to the 
Sweet Sue Canned Whole Chicken

curious can for a closer inspection, I 
could barely lift it as its density, I'm 
certain, was equivalent to that of a 
white dwarf star. 

•Pork Lips. Upon discovery of 
this item, I queried (uncertain of the 
embouchure of the mammal in ques- 
tion) "Pigs don'thave lips, do they?" 
Only then did I realize my foolish 
mistake. This particular product was 
advertised as pork lips, not pig lips. 
Webster's dictionary rid my bewil- 
derment with its little known defini- 
tion: "4. pork x po(e)rk\/j [ME porke, 
pore, porcus]: a legendary animal 
said to possess the most tempting of 
lips, [archaic: thought to lure sailors 
to their deaths upon rocky shores 
with their beautiful porquesong.]" 
Pork lips must then be very delicious. 

The award for the lengthiest title 
for an undescribable product goes 
unchallenged to Libby' s Potted Meat 
Food Product. I admittedly wonder 
though: is itLibby's potted-meat food 
product or Libby 's potted meat-food 

product? Its ingredients seemed 
synonymous with a catalog of live- 
stock innards: pork stomachs, beef 
tripe, partially defatted beef fatty tis- 
sue (the label was obviously written 
by the Louisiana legislature), beef 
hearts, chicken-vinegar (as opposed 
to cow-vinegar or llama- vinegar), salt, 
and flavorings. I myself am most 
suspicious about the ominous "fla- 
vorings." Is there a dark side to Libby? 

Fascinated by the industry, I 
sought to discover its origin. Few 
realize the rich history that potted 
meats claim. Originally the product 
of Trappist monks, what we think of 
today as potted meat was once called 
monk meats. Because cans were not 
available, the original mixtures were 
stored in large Underwood barrels. 
Their product was considered such a 
delicacy that something extremely 
elaborate was often described as 
being "more fine than a barrel of 
monk meats." Interestingly, this 
eventually became the expression 
"more fun than a barrel of monkeys," 

though the correlation between 
two is unclear.

Legislature's anti-abortion bills display lack of maturity 


Senior, Alexandria 

When grownups disagree, we ex- 
pect them to resolve their conflicts 
through rational discourse and to 
beget a fair solution. However, the 
Louisiana Legislature's recent anti- 
abortion bills have demonstrated 
neither maturity nor judiciousness. 

Like children who refuse to listen 
to what they do not want to hear, our 
state' s leg islators h terally have closed 
their ears to vocal pro-choice advo- 
cates. A case in point is the hearing 
that was held by the House Subcom- 
mittee on Health Education and 
Welfare concerning the Jenkins anti- 
abortion bill. The six men on this 
subcommittee snickeredatpro-choice 
witnesses and after hours of testi- 
mony from those witnesses, had no 
questions for them, did not debate 
their testimony , and unanimously rec- 
ommended the bill for passage with- 

out discussion. 

The speeches made in favor of the 
Jenkins bill also reveal the fervor 
with which pro-life groups abandon 
both the issues and chance for com- 
municating with their pro-choice 
opponents, preferring instead to em- 
ploy cheap dramatics and mud sling- 

Senator Mike Cross (D-Baton 
Rouge) held a three inch replica of a 
fetus in his hand during his speech 
and said 'This is what this bill is all 
about today — whether or not these 
little boys and girls are going to have 
a chance to live." How reminiscent 
of other politicians wrapping them- 
selves in the flag in order to seem like 
patriots just before the election year. 

On the steps of the Capitol, pro- 
life zealots hurled fire and brimstone 
at pro-choice demonstrators, telling 
them they were going to hell, and 
"accusing" male pro-choice advo- 

cates of being "feminist" and "homo- 
sexual". Pro-lifers like this and like 
Senator Cross have turned our legis- 
lature into a circus. 

The pro-life position is a simple 
one: the goal is to preserve potential 
human life. Accordingly, their rheto- 
ric fits nicely into cliches such as 
"let's save babies," and "abortion is 
murder." Here is the critical flaw of 
pro-life legislators: there is a con- 
spicuous absence of concern or re- 
spect for the person bearing the fetus. 

To our legislator, a woman is a 
machine for making babies and for 
sexual gratification. The record 
speaks for itself. First, the House 
passes an anti-affirmative action bill, 
a key protector of women's and mi- 
norities' opportunities . in the 
workplace. The Attitude expressed 
by that action was that women have 
no right to equal opportunity — they 
are to be kept at home with other 


Next, House members actually 
laughed at the representative who 
proposed a bill that made it illegal for 
husband to rape his wife. Once again 
they demonstrated contempt for 
women; they assumed that it is the 
husband's right to have sex with his 
wife whenever he wants it Prepos- 
terous! By laughing that bill out of 
the House, our lawmakers continue 
to treat women as objects. 

And now, women in Louisiana 
havebecome pawns inpro-lifers' des- 
perate and hasty efforts to criminal- 
ize abortion. Jenkins himself has 
said that he designed his bill so Lou- 
isiana can become the test case for 
Roe v. Wade in the Supreme Court. 
His bill expresses no concern for the 
women of this state. If you think his 
bill won't affect you, think again: the 
hefty legal fees the state will incur 
will be paid for by you, the taxpayers. 

It is not anyone's duty to convince 
pro-life advocates that they are wrong, 
that abortion is not murder. A 
woman's decision either to have an 
abortion or to carry through the term 
is her decision, not the state's. 

It is the legislature's respon: 

ity to enact laws that treat worm 

humans rather than objects obli 

to produce human life. This re: 

sibility to women is one at whi<

Goodwin said a search for Hill's 
replacement has started and hopes to 
hire someone by Aug.l. 

"It's awfully late to be looking for

Crowe said Hill "has been here

he can do the job." 

Hill is the third coach with North

Summer school rates high with students 

Staff Writer 

As grades go, the new "One Course 
at a Time" summer session would 
receive a fairly high grade, according 
to many Northwestern students. 

"I like the fact that I can concen- 
trate on one class and that is the only 
thing that I have to do," says Rhonda 
Bender, a senior from Many. Many 
students have given the summer 
courses a high mark and some would 
like to see this format continue 
throughout the regular academic year. 

The new system requires students 
to attend a class once a day for three 
hours a day for three weeks. At first, 
this may sound tedious and boring, 
but most material that would would 
normally take a week to complete, is

will also be featured in two special 
floor performances during the Satur- 
day Night Music Show. 

Speyrer, who teaches Cajun danc- 
ing for a living, has produced Allons 
Donser! , the world's first Cajun dance 
video. The 30-minute video — docu- 
menting Cajun culture, people, food, 
and music as weel as providing basic 
two-step, waltz and jitterbug moves — 
has been honored by the American 
Film Institute and Billboard maga- 
zine for its excellence. 

covered in one class session. Be- 
cause of that reason, registration for 
classes is limited to no later than the 
first class meeting, too much infor- 
mation is lost if students register late. 

Though most classes only run for 
three weeks, some have been ex- 
tended to four to six week courses, 
that is still a short time considering 
that a regular semester lasts eighteen 
weeks. Along with revised classes, 
the addition of more classes that were 
not offered summers past have been 
added to the new system. The meal 
plans, activity fees and registration 
fees have all been revised for the new 

Several students feel that the ac- 
tual learning process has been taken 
to a higher level because of the new 

format Marlon Broussard, a junior 
from New Orleans, commented that, 
"...the ability to place the informa- 
tion taught into the long-term mem- 
ory is greater because of the 'one 
course at a time' system. I also have 
a lot more concentrated study time 
and also free time, after all this is 

The new, redesigned system did 
come under some controversy during 
the spring of 1990 because of its 
radical departure from the "regular" 
summer school, but as of now no 
other complaints have been heard 
since the beginning of the first ses- 
sion. It is quite possible that the "One 
Course at a Time" system will re- 
main at Northwestern for summers to 
come, unless students say otherwise. 

Graduate returns to 
Northwestern band 


Staff Writer 

Northwestern's new assistant director of bands is no stranger to 
Natchitoches. Robert Upton completed bis graduate work at North- 
western and then taught at Natchitoches Central High School from 
1980 to 1985. 

After leaving Natchitoches, Upton went on to teach at a Paris, Tex., 
high school for four years and then for one year in Sherman, Tex. 

In addition to working with the bands, Upton will also teach classes 
in percussion and music education. He is also pursuing a doctoral 
degree in music at Arizona State University. Upton said he will be 
doing a great deal of recruiting for the band in Texas and in Louisiana. 

His wife Martha is a former teacher of the gifted and talented here 
in the Natchitoches Parish school system. He also has two children, 
eight-year-old Michael and Juliann, age six. 

Upton is replacing assistant director of bands Pam Towry, who is 
taking on a teaching position at a junior high school in Santa Fe, N.M.

tat is being filmed and at every set 
lat is being built. 
He works closely with the con- 
, miction department, assuring that

King of the film. Because of his 
evotion to the projects that he is 
taking on, Callahan generally ar- 
ves at the. set as early as possible, 
nd usually leaves later that day, not 
go home, but to check another set. 
As his driver, I've had to stay with

Sounds of ancient Indian dances 
drifted through the air and the smells 
of spicy Cajun food filled Prather 
Coliseum as the 11th annual Folk 
Festival was celebrated this past 

Record number crowds browsed 
among craft and food booths while 
Choctaw, Koasati and Creek Indians 
performed intricate dances on the 
coliseum floor. Various demonstra- 
tions such as basketmaking and sto- 
rytelling took place underneath In- 
dian ceremonial arbors. 

One of the top five Indian artists in 
America, Gary White Deer of Okla- 
homa served as consultant to this 
year's Folk Festival. 'The South- 
eastern Indian homecoming reunites 
bright coals which were once kicked 
and scattered. Hopefully, at the fes- 
tival in Natchitoches, these coals will 

rekindle a fire to warm all peoples, ' 
said White Deer. 

One of the many highlights of the 
three-day event was the Friday Night 
Music Show, which featured 'The 
Lord's Prayer" in sign language and 
traditional Caddo Indian dam i ig 
performed by Robert Alley and the 
Michael Edmonds Family. Also 
spoUighted was the Oklahoma swing 
music of the Jack Roebuck Jazz. Trio, 
the contemporary folk music of Trout 
Fishing in America and the Louisi- 
ana country rock sounds product -.1 1 y 
rockabilly performers Al Ferrier and 
the New Showtimers. 

Alley, who is a student at North- 
western, is the lead dancer of the 
Wisdom Indian Family. A native of 
Omaha, Neb., and a native American 
Indian of the Otoe tribe, he has been 
performing professionally with his 
entire family since 1970. Most re 
cently he was seen with the Wisdom 

Family during the opening act of 
Willie Nelson ' s Farm Aid IV benefit. 
Edmonds' pow wosv Caddo group 
was dresses out in "pow wow style," 
and was featured in a family pi eseia 
tation of Caddo singing and dancing. 

At the Saturday Nipht Music 
Show, the pr. >gram shifted over to the 
usual focus of the Folk Festival — 
Cajun culture. NoncJulesandLachcr 
Les performed traditional Cajun 
music, while Dewey Balfa and 
Friends played music from ihe"Cajun 
Revival." A zydeco fais do-do was 
performed by Preston Frank and the 
Soilcau Playboys. 

The crafts portion of the festival 
featured representatives from six 
states and Canada, including all seven 
organized tribes in Louisiana. Show-

Twenty-eight students and two

the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico.

La. Writing Project 
teaches teachers 

NSU professor chairs program 

Thirteen teachers from seven area 
parishes have learned more effective 
ways of teaching writing by partici- 
pating in the five-week Louisiana 
Writing Project which was conducted 
this summer at Northwestern. 

1he summer, directed by Dr. Craig 
Milliman of Northwestern 's Depart- 
ment of Language and Communica- 
tions, was designed to prepare teach- 
ers for new roles as teacher consult- 
ants in the Louisiana Writing Project, 
which is a statewide network of sum- 
mer training sites which will offer a 
series of staff development work- 

Aimed at improving the teaching 
of writing in Louisiana's public and 
private schools, the project is mod- 
eled on the highly successful Na- 
tional Writing Project, considered by 
many experts to be the most effective 
tool for staff development in Ameri- 
can education today. 

Milliman says that such writing 
projects work because they draw on 
the experience, dedication and crea- 
tivity of the classroom teacher. 

"We bring them together and treat 
them like writers so they can learn the 
new 'process' approach to writing 
from the inside out," Milliman ex- 
plained. 'Then they takeover, teach- 
ing each other how to improve their 
own teaching. And what they come 
up with is often amazing and always 

According to Milliman, the proc- 
ess approach to writing breaks writ- 
ing down into manageable steps so 
students can approach one problem 
at a time rather than trying to cope 
with a complex task all at once. 

"It mirrors the way real writers 
write," Milliman said. "Profession- 
als write this way because it works, 
and if it works for Stephen King, it 
will work for the children of Louisi- 

Among the thirteen teachers who 
participated in the summer Louisiana 
Writing Project at Northwestern was 
Natchitoches Parish teacher Shasta 
Daniels, a teacher of sixth, seventh 
and eighth-grade language arts at 
Marthaville Junior High School.

Record labeling 

Labeling offensive albums 
an unneccessary evil 

Here we go again. 

With its latest bill, the Louisiana Legislature is providing enough fodder 
for the national news media for the next few years. HouseBill 154, the "trash 
lyrics" bill, is now on the table, and with it, legislators are once again telling 
the world Louisiana is a backwards state that tramples free speech and 

The bill proposes to place parental warnings on records that contain 
themes of "murder, suicide, incest, bestiality, [and] illegal use of drugs and 
alcohol." The basic concept of this is sound (protect children from material 
which might have a harmful influence), but the execution of this idea is dead 

We cannot allow the state to infringe on the rights of artists by labeling their 
works obscene or "for adults only." Yes, we want to keep young people from 
these offensive materials, but we are going about it the wrong way. 

Granted, much of the music that is being labeled obscene is just that. With 
songs such as "We Want Some P — y" and "Me So Horny," anyone who 
listens to the 2 Live Crew can' t deny that their songs don' t contain numerous 
vulgar references (and yes, the "F' word is said 226 times on the album, 
almost three times per minute). The ignorant racism of Guns 'N Roses is 
simply disgusting, especially when you consider that a majority of young 
people listen to and enjoy the Gunners' bigotry set to music. The violence of 
Judas Priest's music is evident from a cursory glance at any of their album 

Most parents do not want their children listening to or buying albums with 
such sexual and violent overtones. A record bearing a warning label would 
help parents of younger children in determining a purchase. This is all well 
and good, but it is illegal. 

The First Amendment defends the rights of musicians and other artists, 
allowing them to say and do as they please. Even though it seems moderate 
compared to other forms of censorship, labeling their records censors the 
artist's work. Labeling a record is not going to prevent those who want the 
material from getting it anyway — that which is forbidden is the most desir- 

Theodore M. Haik, a representative from District 49, is a proponent of 
House Bill 154 who believes that this bill will protect the children of 
Louisiana from obscene material. According to Haik, the music industry is 
"producing 'trash lyrics' and selling it to minors" and that their products 
should therefore be labeled. "Should we not try to protect our children with 
a requirement to label that recording? What is wrong with that?" 

Plenty, Mr. Haik. This is America and we cannott label something as 
offensive to someone and hide it away from everyone else. It is unfortunate 
that legitimately trashy lyrics are being produced, but they ha v e every right 
to do so. It is not the Legislature's job to decide whether or not we should 
listen to a certain type of music. 

That job of deciding what to listen to is up to the parents of young children, 
and ultimately, up to the individual making the purchase. As a free nation, we 
cannot pass laws limiting any freedoms whatsoever, even if those freedoms 
are personally offensive. 

Voltaire once said, "I disagree with what you have to say, but I will defend 
to the death your right to say it." Maybe the Louisiana Legislature needs to 
listen to that instead of the 2 Live Crew.

Gotta take a sedimental journey 

While recently perusing the local 
Hallmark store, a veritable Sentiment- 
O-Rama, I discovered to my surprise, 
only a sparse assortment of simple 
cards expressing simple thoughts. 
Have Victorian sentiments such as 
"Happy Anniversary," and "Con- 
gratulations" gone out with the bustle 
and petticoat? I found dozens of 
"Hope You're Feeling Better On The 
Anniversary of Your Uncle Nachum ' s 
Bar Mitzvah" and "Wishing You 
Success At Bonsai" cards, but was 
unable to locate what I felt was a 
simple, but truly appropriate and 
sincere message. 

Sentiment is a funny word. 
Homonymically, it favors"sediment," 
though the distinction is obvious I 
think. One therefore must be careful 
with its pronunciation, lest when 
being referred to as "sentimental" 
you mightn't be thought of in terms 
of sludge, or septic tanks. Imagine 
how confused our lives might be if 
inarticulate songsters of the early part 
of this century would have sung I'm 

Demon's Advocate

Getting Sedimental Over You," "In 
A Sedimental Way," and "Sedimen- 
tal Journey." 

Alas, except for the hearing im- 
paired, that never did occur, though 
I'm not altogether certain that the 
repercussions would have been even 
a little bit impressive. Regardless, 
we are a society which thrives on 
sentiment. Movies, television, books, 
and International Coffeecommercials 
demonstrate our penchant for sap. It 
seem s however, that despite our zeal- 
ous efforts, sentiment is an often cheap 
and commercialized ruse we manipu- 
late to make others think that we're 
sensitive and well-adjusted. 

Advertising campaigns are noto- 
rious for this hoax. McDonald's uses 
it to urge us to believe that their 
hamburgers are not 100% processed 
soybeef food product and that their 
special sauce on the Big Mac is not 
just thousand island dressing. 
AT&T's commercials try to make us 
think that we actually have a choice 
of phone companies. Insurance 
companies, for instance, Mutual of 
Omaha, are professionals at this 
weepy farce. Marlin Perkins is right

Labeling 'obscene' records — don't believe the hyp^ d 


General Manager, KNWD-FM 
Senior, Hammond 

A person awakens to the sound of 
footsteps outside his bedroom door. 
He steps into the hall to find eight 
police officers ripping through his 
belongings, address book, business 
ledgers, record collection, and pri- 
vate mail. What are these officers 
looking for drugs? Weapons? Evi- 
dence of a communist plot? No. The 
man in question is Jello Biafra. The 
police are looking for a record album , 
Fronkenchrist, by Biafra's now de- 
funct band Dead Kennedys. This is 
America, April 15, 1985. 

Two men are arrested as they leave 
a nightclub. Are they also criminals? 
To Jesse Helms,Theodore Haik, Mike 
Cross, Tipper Gore, and others they 
are. Their crime? Performing songs 
from theirplatinum (over one million 
copies sold) album, Nasty as They 
Wanna Be, to an "adults only show." 
They are Luther Campbell and Chris 
Wong Won, two members of 2 Live 
Crew. This is America, June 10, 

Shift focus to Louisiana. On 
Governor Roemer ' s desk rests a piece 
of legislation which, along with in- 
ane anti-abortion, beat-up-a-flag- 
burner, and regressive workfare leg- 
islation, has helped put Louisiana on 
the front pages of many national 

newspapers. It is House Bill 154. 

HB 154 mandates the labeling of 
any recording containing "harmful 
lyrics." It may not sound so bad at 
first, after all who wants to hear any 
"harmful lyrics?" But HB 154 goes 
further: it also requires that all such 
albums, cassettes, and compact disks 
be held "under the counter," and that 
consumers be "carded" before they 
can buy such an album. Clearly this 
infringes upon the rights of the con- 
sumer to purchase whatever she 
wishes. Imagine if one had to show 
proof of age to purchase a copy of 
Slaughterhouse Five, Catcher in the 
Rye, or Huckleberry Finn (books that 
proponents of such legislation are 
usually in favorof banning). Itseems 
ludicrous that government would try 
to restrict the free exchange of ideas. 

Beyond the restriction of your 
rights, HB 154 arrived just after the 
recording industry announced the 
design of a uniform sticker which has 
begun to grace the jewel boxes and 
album sleeves of records across the 
nation. Still members of the Louisi- 
ana Legislature claim that their bill is 
necessary. Why? Because it has 
taken three years for the entire re- 
cording industry to develop a sticker- 
ing system. Rome wasn't built in a 
day, nor were thousands of record 
companies able to cave into the forces 
of censorship in a single day. 

'This bill is designed to protect 
the children of Louisiana." Yeah, 
right. It's designed to make the 
Louisiana Legislature look like 
they're working for their money. 
With education in shambles, the 
budget still unbalanced, and worsen- 
ing social problems, Louisiana is 
looking real bad — and our legisla- 
ture is looking very ineffective. But 
not this session! Look at all they've 
done! In the words of one of the 
many groups they'd like to censure: 
"Don't believe the hype." 

HB 154 is not designed to protect 
children. It's designed to force Big 
Brother further into our lives. This 
bill doesn't effect the impersonal 
industry.iteffectsyouandme. When 
the call begins with banning "harm- 
ful lyrics," why does it always end by 
banning the works of political artists 
like Public Enemy and Dead Ken- 

HB 154 does not protect children 
from lyrics that "encourage or advo- 
cate murder, suicide, incest, bestial- 
ity, illegal use of drugs and alcohol," 
and so forth. Representative Theo- 
dore Haik, in a letter to the July 22 
issue of thcNatchitochesTimes says, 
This bill will not effect country and 
western songs, 'Romeo and Juliet,' 
and other lyrics which have been 
srroneously referred to by the music 
industry." Country and Western 

music has a long history of songs 
which advocate alcohol abuse, mi- 
sogamy, child abuse, and general 
violence. "Romeo and Juliet" (the 
song, not the play) tells the tale of two 
star-crossed lovers who commit sui- 
cide so that they can stay together. 
Haik's hypocrisy is quite evident. 

Legislation like HB 154 acts only 
to serve the self-interests of overpaid 
public officials. It allows them to 
censor anyone who says something 
they do not like, nor understand. Is it 
any wonder that the focus of their 
attack is always hip-hop, rap, punk, 
and metal? Not only are all of these 
musical styles expressions of youth 
culture, but many encourage youth to 
question the absurdity that is life under 
our increasingly less democratic 
American government. KRS-One 
notes "you teach black kids to be 
black, why is that?" 7 Seconds 
encourage youth to "Use your head, 
be aware, give a f — ." The Clash 
warn that "You have the right to free 
speech, as long as you're not dumb 
enough to actually try it." 

They always begin by claiming 
that they're protecting children, but 
they always attack the small guy. 
Anti-rock/rap zealots always men- 
tion Ozzy Osborne and other high 
profile groups when they complain 
about lyrics, but they arrest 2 Live 
Crew and Jello Biafra. The reason- 

ing is simple: Ozzy's record label, 
Columbia Records, has $500,000 set 
aside to handle any such litigation. A 
small label like Luke Skyywalker or 
Alternative Tentacles is fighting to 
stay solvent as it is — they are more 
likely to be put out of business by 
such a lawsuit. 

If such reasoning seen.s rather 
sneaky and fascist to you, good. 
Because it is. The government is 
acting to squash dissent among the 
youth. By forcing "feel good" music 
or at least "happy sounds".like Milli 
Vanilli on us, the youth of America, 
they hope to keep us complacent. 
"Don't question authority, it's bad 
foryourcomplexion." "Those home- 

less people like living on steContinue 
grates." "Buy! Buy! Buy!" "HapVera's dre:

Constitutional revisions will go before students in fall 

The main project of the Student 
vernment Association this sum- 
jr has been to complete rewrite its 

^ast December, the SGA 
"Institution Committee submitted a 
istitution to the Senate which 
itained only slight revisions from 
previous one. "After working on 
;old constitution for three months," 
rj SGA President Sarah Robinson, 
e committee realized that it needed 
pmpletel y start over and scrap the 
lone. " 

The Committee began working in 
irch, after several of the SGA 
mbers returned from the Council 
Student Government Associations 
DSG A) at Texas A&M. Members 
fending COSGA were Treasurer 
ll Johnson, Commissioner of Elec- 
hs Beth Gowland, and senators 
bila Sampite, Scott Andrews, Brent 
Ickrell, Oscar George, and Robin- 

f'Our present constitution is quite 
Irdy and confusing," said Johnson. 
it have tried to avoid any ques- 

tionable terms." The present 
constitution is approximately 30 
pages long. The proposed one will be 
about 10 pages in length. 

The new constitution will restruc- 
ture the entire SGA. It breaks the 
organization into seven departments 
under which committees operate. 
"We hope that this system will not 
only be more efficient," said Robin- 
son, "but allow more students to 
become involved." 

The present executive committee 
is made up of five officers: President, 
Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, 
and Commissioner of Elections. The 
new constitution allows for only three 
executive officers: President, Secre- 
tary of State, and Treasurer. Accord- 
ing to Rpbinson, the decrease in offi- 
cers "will cut down the use of SGA 
funds for scholarships and allow the 
money to be used in ways that can 
better facilitate the students." 

The new constitution will be ready 
for a vote by the students in the fall 
election. All officers who are cur- 
rently in office will not be affected by 

the constitutional changes. "The 
majority of the constitution will be 
put into effect immediately upon its 
passage, but several of the articles 
and by-laws will not go into effect 
until next April or May, such as the 
structure and membership of the 
Senate and the new executive com- 
mittee. The SGA is currently work- 
ing within limits under the depart- 
ment system," continued Robinson. 

The constitution will be published 
in the Current Sauce for three weeks 
before it is brought before the student 
body. "I know the reading is not very 
exciting, but it is important for stu- 
dents to read and understand a docu- 
ment that greatly affects them. We 
have tried to make it as clear as pos- 
sible," Robinson said. 

If passed, the proposed constitution 
will go into effect on October 1. 
Copies of the proposed constitution 
are available in the SGA office after 
August 15. For more information, 
contact the Student Government 
Association at 357-4501.

JOVE Initiative officially 

WP^dvocate searches for sentiment 

began in the summer of 1989 as par- 
ticipating professors, including four 
from Northwestern— Dr. Gary White 
in physics, Dr. James Rozell Jr. and 
Dr. H. Wayne Hyde in chemistry, 
and Dr. Donald E. Ryan in mathe- 
matics — spent 10 weeks at the 
Marshall Space Flight Center for in- 
doctrination and early involvement 
in NASA's current research activi- 
ties. Upon returning to the campus 
last fall, Northwestern 's faculty re- 
search associates have been engaged 
in apart-timecollaboration with their 
NASA counterparts facilitated by 
electronic link. 

For the past several months, North- 
western and the six other JOVE insti- 
tutions have been using space sci- 
ence data to develop on-campus re- 
search projects, enrich their curricula 
and stimulate pre-college students 
through outreach programs. 

White, a nuclear physicist who 
has been amemberofNorthwestern's 
physics faculty since the fall of 1987, 
is involved in a continuing study of 
cosmic rays, conducting research on 
high energy particles collected by 
instruments carried by balloons and 
spacecraft into the higher atmos- 
pheres of space. 

Hyde, an organic chemist with 28 
years of experience on 
Northwestera's chemistry faculty, 
currently is collaborating with NASA 
scientists at the Marshall Space Flight 
Center on experiments to further study 
the separation of cells, crystal growth 
and alloys from undercooling and 
immenscible phases. 

Rozell, an analytical chemist at 
Northwestern since January of 1988, 
is working with NASA scientists on 
research projects pertaining to high- 
temperature superconductivity. 

Within these projects, special em- 
phasis is being given to studies of 
magnetism in superconductors, solid- 
state chemistry, crystals and their 
structure, and mankind's benefit from 
these new materials. 

A member of Northwestera's 
mathematics faculty since 1968, Ryan 
has been actively involved with 
NASA's efforts to further examine 
the hydrologic process — the water 
cycle in the earth's atmosphere. This 
is being accomplished by analyzing 
data received from satellite's remote 
sensing of theearth's atmosphere and 
attempting to determine the role that 
moisture or water plays in that cycle. 

The four scientists in the JOVE 
Initiative are being featured in spe- 
cial presentations to a variety of 
audiences through the speaker's bu- 
reau established by Northwestern's 
Department of Mathematical and 
Physical Sciences.

All across the state, college 
students are unknowingly footing the 
bill for athletics, according to the 
Board of Regents, which sets policy 
for all Louisiana colleges. The 
exception is at Louisiana State 
University, whose athletic programs 
are almost totally self-sufficient 

Locating money for sports 
programs is high on the list at 
Louisiana universities, where many 
schools spent more student funds on 
athletics than on libraries last school 
year. McNeese University in Lake 
Charles led the way in top 
expenditures, but Northwestern came 

in a close second with 7.3 percent of 
its campus budget spent on athletics 
with only 3.5 percent spent on 

Ignoring a two-year-old ruling by 
the Board of Regents stating that state 
schools are forbidden to use 
taxpayers' money for athletic 
programs, almost all state colleges 
and universities are dipping into 
student tuition to fund their sports 
instead of relying on outside income. 
Northwestern ranks second only to 
Nicholls State University in 
Thibodaux on the amount of student 
tuition spent on athletics.

9th Wave rolls in 

The 9th Wave, a student support 
group for athletics, is getting its start 
here at Northwestern. 

Similar to the 12th Man Club at 
Texas A&M University, the purpose 
of the organization is to create 
enthusiasm and spirit and to help 
promote all Demon and Lady Demon 
teams, said organizer Greg Burke of 
the Northwestern Athletic 

Burke stressed that the 9th Wave 
willbeastudentorganization. "There 
will be student officers and regular 
meetings. Members of the athletic 
department will service in an advisory 
capacity only," said Burke. 

Membership in the 9th Wave is 
$5, for which the student receives a 
9th Wave t-shirt, a button, and a shaker 
to bring to the games. The shaker is 
sponsored by Itza Pizza and has a 

punch-out token that can be redeemed 

"There is no limit to the impact 
that this organization can have on 
athletic events atNorthwestem," said 
Burke. "A little bit of ingenuity and 
creativity will go a long way towards 
making athletic events fun to attend 
and will be a big morale boost for our 

Even though the support group 
has had little time to plan for the 
upcoming season, the 9th Wave will 
still be a presence at the home opener 
this weekend. Aside from face 
painting and a special seating section, 
9th Wave members wearing their t- 
shirts and waving their shakers will 
"create an identity," said Burke, 
adding "It is important to establish a 
traditional welcome for the football 
team when it takes the field before a

"This is the only time to get a 
picture made," said Van Rodney 
Reed, editor of the 1991 edition 
Potpourri. "We advise everyone to 
take their picture so they can be in 
their yearbook." 

Library raises fines 

Fines at the Eugene P. Watson 

Memorial Library have increased to 
25 cents per day per book. The 
maximum amounthas increased from 
$10 to $25 per book. Reserve fines 
remain at 25 cents per day per book. 

Chartered clubs need 
to apply for funds 

All chartered campus 
organizations which would like to 
receive funds through the Student 
Government Association's non- 
varsity club sports fund need to apply 
no later than September 21 . 

Packets containing the necessary 
application forms can be picked up in 
the SGA Office, room 222 of the 
Student Union. Applications will be 
assessed by comparing need, appeal, 
past fund-raising activities and other 
pertinent information.

"A policy has been set, and it has 
been ignored totally," said board 
chairman George Hardy of Lafayette. 
"Nobody's done anything to wrestle 
with this serious problem." 

Dr. Edward Graham, vice- 
president of academic affairs at 
Northwestern, expressed concern 
about the amount of student money 
spent but would not comment further. 

In their ruling, the Board of 
Regents ordered universities to reduce 
the amount of student money spent to 
35 percent of athletic budgets by 1 99 1 . 
However, almost all colleges have 
increased their reliance on student 


"Obviously, the universities are 
not going to get to 35 percent under 
any circumstances," said board 
member Wayne Lee of NewOrleans. 

Much to the dismay of the Board 
of Regents, the Board of Trustees for 
State Colleges and Universities has 
proposed an alternative plan that 
would allow each athletic program a 
support base of $500,000 from 
student fees, plus monies equal to 3 
percent to 5 percent of the university ' s 
total operating budget. This proposal 
would allow all campuses governed 
by the Trustees to take more money 

from students for athletic programs. 

The reliance on student fees in 
Louisiana is not high compared to 
those at out-of-state colleges, said 
David McCormick, president of the 
Trustees system, which manages 
Northwestern and eight other 

Reducing student subsidies would 
require a "drastic change" in 
collegiate sports in Louisiana, said 
McCormick, adding that athletics 
require base expenses for scholarships 
and travel. "It's to the point where 
we have to decide if we're going to 
have athletics or not," he said. 

University receives grant 

Co-op program recipient of funds 

North western State University has 
received a $102,812 grant from the 
U.S. Department of Education for 
second-year fundingof the three- year, 
federally-funded cooperation 
program at NSU. 

For the first two years of the 
program, Northwestern has been the 
recipient of $230,379 in federal funds. 
in September of 1989 to cover the 
first-year costs of the program. 
According to the grant, NSU is 
providing 20 percent of the funding. 

In the fall of 1987, Northwestern 
program independent of any external 
funds. It was during this two-year 
period that university officials 
realized the importance of the project 
in relation to its enhancement of the 
Northwestern student's job 
employment skills. 

The project, which is moving 
toward the development of a 
university-based co-op program that 
is campus-wide in all disciplines, is 
considered important because it 

enables students to complete degrees 
in a timely manner and bridges the 
theoretical and practical basis for the 
world of work. 

"Students, employers and the 
university work hand in hand 
developing skills, adjusting programs 
and generally making education more 
realistic," said NSU President Dr. 
Robert A. Alost. 

Guided by an advisory board, 
Northwestern's cooperative 
education program is designed to 
primarily provide work experience 
in the student's area of vocational 
career choice, establish work 
experiences for students with 
numerous major firms, create 
alternate semester periods of work 
and academic study for participating 
students, and ease the transition from 
an academic environment into a career 

In addition, it is enhancing \h? 
overall academic performance of tiie 
student by bringing work experience 
into the classroom and fostering a 
more meaningf ul partnership between 

industry and higher education, while 
providing professional development 
for faculty and staff. 

Students admitted to the 
cooperative education program at 
NSU can received supervised work 
experience by securing 20-hours-per- 
week employment while continuing 
their studies on campus or leave the 
campus for one semester to work as 
full-time employees. All work must 
be in an academic-related field. 

Currently, the cooperative 
education program at Northwestern 
has students placed in a variety of 
difference positions, including 
accounting clerks, computer-data 
entry clerks, manager trainees, word 
processors, junior programmers and 
office manager trainees. 

"The importance of challenging 
the student and providing a 
meaningful experience is a key factor 
in the success of the program," said 
Margaret Kilcoyne, coordinator. 

Bradbury to present lecture 

Staff Writer 

Ray Bradbury, one of the most 
popular speakers on the college 
circuit, will be speaking in the Fine 
Arts Auditorium at 11 a.m. on 
Th ursday , SepL 1 3 as part of the 1 990- 
1991 Distinguished Lecture Series. 

Bradbury, born in 1920, had his 
first short story published in Rob 
Wagner' s Script when he was 20 years 
old. He has since then produced a 
variety of literary works, from poems 
to novels. A world-renowned author, 
over 40 million copies of his books 
have been sold in more than 20 
countries. He is most recognized for 
his novels. The Martian Chronicles, 
Fahrenheit 451 and more recently, A 

Graveyard for Lunatics. 

Bradbury's literary career is not 
confined to novels. He has also written 
over 400 short stories, some of which 
have been featured in PBS family- 
oriented program, "Wonderworks." 
Other writings of his have appeared 
in numerous magazines, such as The 
New Yorker, Harper's, and Life. 

Bradbury has written several 
screenplays, among them, "I Sing the 
Body Electric," "Something Wicked 
This Way Comes" and worked with 
the late John Huston on the screenplay 
of "Moby Dick." Many of his plays 
have been produced at the 
Pandemonium Theater, which he 
helped establish in 1964. 

Much of Bradbury's writing 

reveals a concern for the future and 
how humanity will utilize its 
resources — natural, mechanical and 
mental. He expresses this sentiment 
in activities outside of, as well as 
within, his writing. Directly related 
to this career, though, is the donation 
of the royalties from book sales in 
Russia, $10 million in rubles, to a 
Soviet-U.S. student exchange 

Other achievements of Bradbury 
include the US Pavilion at the 1964 
World's Fair in New York and 
EPCOT' s Spaceship Earth in Orlando, 
Fla. He is also collaborating on the 
design of a twenty-first century city 
to be built near Tokyo, Japan.

Process has improved, 
but bugs still in system 

It's a Northwestern tradition — standing in line for registration. This 
year's exodus to Prather Coliseum helped some* but there were many facets 
of the process which could have been simplified. 

Freshmen enrolling at the university this year are lucky not to remember 
registration of years past. Just a few semesters ago, you would start of fat Roy 
Hall, then head over to your department for advising, go to the Student Union 
for meal plans, trudge back to Roy Hall for a drop/add card, go back to the 
Union to visit the Housing department, then make your way through the 
labyrinth of the Computer Center. 

Now il*s gotten simpler. All students have to do is register and drop/add 
in their department Fee payments, meal plans and housing is all taken care 
of at Prather. It's very convenient and Registrar Lynda Tabor is to be 
commended for centralizing the process and making things easier (there was 
even a table where the Catholic Student Organization offered Cokes to weary 
students). But problems still exist. 

Of course, the main gripe is always the interminable wait in line. Some of 
that just cannot be helped — but it always seems like you're in line behind the 
person whose federal financial aid form is not entered into the computer. 
; Waiting to pay fees tests the stamina of even the most patient of students, but 
at least it isn't followed by a wild goose chase across campus in search of 
£ someone's signature. 
— — 

"You would start off at Roy Hall, then 
head over to your department for 
advising, go to the Student Union for 
ijmeal plans, trudge back to Roy Hall for 
a drop/add card, go back to the Union 
to visit the Housing department, then 
make your way through the labyrinth 
-of the Computer Center. 

Now it's gotten simpler." 

Another unforeseen problem is closed classes. Just a cursory glance at a 
class list will amaze you: several sections of core courses are full to capacity. 
Is this because enrollment is up, or are there fewer sections available this year? 
This presents a major problem for those trying to complete their required 
courses, but the administration promises more sections will be opened. 

Not too many people realized it, but one of the reasons behind some of the 
slow lines down at the Coliseum was the computer. Sure, you've heard that 
excuse before, but this time it's true. Northwestern has just received new 
computer software which was supposed to make everything easier for 
everybody. Problem is, no one knows how to use it and must therefore learn 
"on the job," i.e. while you're registering. 

One problem encountered during registration is the lack of manpower in 
the registrar's office. Those working behind the desk have a tough time 
during the year trying to help every student, but registration puts an extra 
strain on the office. However, we can't give them much creditiwhen they 
refuse to answer their phones at times. 

Remembering back to registrations gone by, you can't help but wonder if 
this year's process will change again. It's never been the same way or in the 
same place twice — will the relative ease of registering in Prather be replaced 
by another new idea? It seems to work this semester, so if improvements are 
"implemented then registration should go smoothly for everyone, students and

Iraq, U.S. headed for collision 

»Blue KeyiiK 
321 of 

When American and Iraqi forces 
clash this year, President George 
Bush's sophomoric politicking and 
hasty military commitments will be 
the sources of blame. 

Why, you may ask, do I put the 
question in terms of "when?" You 
might go so far as to say that Bush's 
costly endeavors in the region are 
wholly defensive — that he has sent and 
continues to send tens of thousands of 
young Americans to Saudi Arabia in 
order to prevent further aggression. 
You could argue that with a superpower 
force in the region, Saddam Hussein 
will rethink his designs on Kuwait, and 
pull out of the tiny country. So why 
should I worry about my country trying 
to fight a war halfway across the world? 

Because I harbor no doubts that 
Bush's plans in the Persian Gulf call 
for a bone-crushing collision between 
U.S. and Iraqi military forces. 
Furthermore, I will not be surprised if 
U.S . forces cross "the line drawn in the 
desert" first Already the war of rhetoric 
has begun. On Aug. 12, not 10 days 
zi ter the initial Iraqi invasion of Kuwait,

the Associated Press quoted Mr. Bush 
as saying he was sure "some countries 
around the world are hoping [an ouster 
of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein] 
will happen." 

Since then, Bush has likened 
Saddam Hussein to Hitler — a 
comparison that serves to make even 
the former director of the CI A look like 
a saint On Aug. 28 , he said Mr. Hussein 
"would pay a high price for occupying 
Kuwait." Bush told the AP last Friday 
that he was "not optimistic" about 
chances for a diplomatic settlement of 
problems in the Persian Gulf. 

Certainly Hussein had done little to 
enhance his diplomatic options until 
he authorized the release of almost 300 

dependents of Western diplomats five 
days ago. Still, his use of foreign 
nationals as "human shields" to deter 
attacks on key installations and the 
"official" annexation of Kuwait into 
Iraq as "the 19th Province" constitute 
reprehensible actions. 

However, the primary reason little 
hope exists for a diplomatic solution is 
that Bush has painted himself into a 
corner. His decision to send troops to 
Saudi Arabia came much too quickly. 
First, many foreign policy experts, 
including Zbigniew Brzenski, former 
Secretary of State, agree that Iraqi 
forces were in no position to advance 
beyond Kuwait — an attempt to do so 
could have necessitated reducing Iraq ' s

Women should have a 
choice before the act 


I agree with your July 10 editorial 
"The Issue is Choice" as well as 
Thomas Easterling's letter to the 
editor. Women should have a choice! 

Women should have a choice 
before the act, not after the fact! 

The pro-choice coalition has 
missed the point entirely . Today pro- 
choicers are nothing more than a 
group demanding that women of 
America have the right to choose 
abortion as a method of birth control. 

If a woman is truly concerned 
about her health and her body, she 
will prevent an unwanted pregnancy 
before it happens by either having no 
sex or by having safe, responsible 


Pro-choicers will argue that 
-women impregnated by an unlawful 
act (rape or incest) should have a 
choice as to whether or not they 

terminate a pregnancy. Yes, I agree 
that these victims should be offered a 
choice, but rape and incest victims 
are a very small minority of the 
women seeking abortions. The 
majority of women are willing to risk 
pregnancy for the sake of spontaneous 
sex when they know they can abort if 
they become pregnant. This is the 
issue here — abortion is not just 
another method of birth control. 

Yes, women have a choice before 
the act, not after the fact. 

Easterling writes "there is a 
conspicuous absence of concern or 
respect for the person bearing the 
fetus." I'm sorry but I find it hard to 
respect a woman who does not see 
the creation of a human life as a 
sacred gift, one who is so selfish that 
she will put sexual fulfillment above 
another's life when she can make a 
choice before this actand thus prevent 
the destruction of a life. 

Women should make a choice 
before the act, not after the fact!

President, Student Government 
Senior, Shreveport 

As Northwestern State University 
Student Government Association 
president, I would like to take this 
opportunity to make the student body 
aware of the SGA. 

The SGA is here for the students 
of Northwestern. Our membership is 
made up of the students of 
Northwestern. We cannot function 
efficiently as an organization without 
the help, advice and support of the 
students of Northwestern. 

In the next issue of the Current 
Sauce, the proposed SGA constitution 
will appear. I strongly urge every 
student to carefully read this 
document. I realize that this type of 
literature is not exactly looked upon 
as "worthwhile," but there are several 
major changes that will be effecting 

each student 

According to the proposed 
constitution, the purpose of the SGA 
is "to promote the welfare of the 
Students of Northwestern State 
University by communicating with 
the administration both their 
academic and extracurricular needs, 
serving as a liaison between the 
student body , and recommending any 
desirable changes concerning any 
aspect of student life." 

The proposed constitution will 
give more students an opportunity to 
speak out about decisions that directly 
effect them, because of the increase 
in the number of senators and the new 
department system. 

I would like to thank the many 
students who already taken initiative 
and joined an SGA committee or run 
for office. 

Our meetings will be held this 
semester on Mondays at 8 p.m. in the 
SGA conference room. Contact the 
SG Aoffice in room 222of the Student 
Union at 357-4501 to find out how 
you can become involved.

leisure Activities kicks off semester with flag football 

LlCnukDm lam ■ . . 

taff Writer 

Providing recreation and sporting 
jponunities foi all NSU students is 
e number one goal of the Leisure 
cuvities program at NSU. Leisure 
cavities also manages the popular 
tram urals program, which provides 
adents competitive play in more 
an 20 different sports. 

Ranging from flag football during 

the fall semester to softball in the 
spring, Intram urals proves to be a 
very importantand worthwhile aspect 
of campus life. 

With more than 10,000 students 
competing in events last year, the 
program is continually growing. Dr 
Gene Newman, director of the 
program, accredits the success of the 
program to the "wonderful support 
of our student body, the Student 

Government Association and our 
faculty and staff." 

A lot of time and effort goes into 
the preparation for all competitive 
events. The Leisure Activities staff 
is always enlisting help horn the 
students that make this program 
successful. Students can not only be 
participants in the events, but by 
attending a few seminars, students 
can officiate, also. 

"Quality programming, enjoyable 
experiences and fair play are all 
expectations thatare realized through 
participation in the NSU Leisure 
Activities program," said Newman. 

Starting Sept. 19 with the flag 
football competitions, Intramural 
events will take place almost every 
week of the semester. Unlike other 
universities, NSU has the facilities 
and the space to accommodate 

competitions for any possible sport. 
In addition to the fully equipped 
Intramural B ui lding, there are several 
football, softball, and practice areas 
all over campus. 

The Intramural Building is open 
72 hours a week and can be used free 
of charge by all registered students. 
Along with the basketball, volleyball 
and badminton courts, the 1M 
Building houses racquetball courts, a 

weightroom with dozens of different 
weight programs, a game room , pool 
tables and pingpong. Leisure 
Activities also manages the 
Chaplain's Lake Boathouse, where 
the canoes, windsurfers and pedal 
boats are housed.

municipalities for outstanding 
achievements in municipal operations 
and delivery of public services. The 
award reflects excellence in overall 
progress made in every facet of 
municipal operations, such as finance, 
public safety, streets, recreation, 
capital improvements, planning, 
education and the quality of life. 

Announcement of the 1989 

Achievement Award was made Aug. 
1 1 at the Annual Banquet of the LMA. 
Some 1,800 mayors, municipal 
officials, guests and exhibitors 
participated in the meeting. 

A panel of five representatives, 
one from the Louisiana Legislative 
Auditor's offices, Louisiana State 
University Governmental Services 
Institute, Louisiana Department of 

Economic Development, Louisiana 
Department of Transportation and 
Development, and the State's regional 
planning commission, judge thelarge 
number of entries and select the 
winners prior to the convention. 

"Municipalities have made 
remarkable progress in improving 
every level of public service in the 
past year, even though the economic 

recovery of the State and her 
communities has been slow. 
Municipalities continue to be affected 
by budget restraints and costly state 
and federal mandates which further 
impede progress and growth. 
Undaunted by today ' s fiscal reali ties, 
the leaders and officials of our state's 
cities have adopted innovation and 
determination as their guides to 
securing better living conditions for 

then citizens," said John A. Berthelot, 
outgoing LMA president 

"This award is a tribute to the 
foresight and vision of the mayor and 
other municipal officials whose 
concern for the people of their city 
has contributed to an improved quality 
of life not only for their community, 
but for the entire state," he added. 

Mayor Sampite and other city 
officials accepted the award.

Reconstruction program adds new classes, stage productions for 1990-91 season >4-h< 

Staff Writer 

The installation of Northwestern' s 
theatre program is well under way. 
Dr. Jack Wann , artistic director of the 
theatre department, has already begun 
new classes and programs. 

Wann spent the past 12 years 
building the theatre program at 
Northern Kentucky University. At 
Northwestern, his goal is to 
restructure the department so students 

can obtain a bachelor of fine arts. 
The focus of the BFA program is "to 
provide both preprofessional and 
pregraduate training," said Wann. 

At the crux of the restructuring are 
expanded class offerings. Movement, 
voice and stage combat are just a few 
of the areas Wann wants theatre 
majors to explore in classes. 

Another venue for students to 
prepare themselves for life after 
Northwestern lies with the guest 

artists who will come in periodically 
to work with the students. The guest 
artists are professionals willing to 
teach the students about their craft as 
well as earning a living in theatre. 

Students will learn their craft on 
stage in the shows of the 1990-91 
University Theatre season. Fall 
productions are Bertolt Brecht's Good 
Woman of Setzuan, on Oct. 2-7, and 
the new comedy by Sarah Provost, 
The Home Team, on Nov. 7-10 and 

Nov. 14-16. The production will be 
directed by Vicki Parrish, assistant 
professor of theatre, and Wann 

The spring productions will bring 
music and Shakespeare to 
Northwestern. Wann will direct the 
Tony Award-nominated musical 
Quilters by Molly Newman and 
Barbara Damashek on March 14-16 
and March 21-24, as well as 
S hakespeare'sAr YouLike It, on April 


The stage productions are not the 
only places for students to gain 
onstage experience. Wann has set up 
the Loft Showcase Series, "a series of 
free works in progress in NSU's 
intimate Loft Theatre will be followed 
by lively post-show discussions," 
according to season literature. There 
will be three presentations each 

After meeting with students, Wann 

is excited about the level of taleL# Writer 
cooperation and interest L i sten ers of N 

"The interest I was hoping woi^ , 
be here is even greater than ' ch s 
expected," said Wann. Although tf ester Northv

New services 
now available 
at library 

The EdLINC network, a 
nationwide database of materials for 
classroom and administrative 
application, and the Louisiana 
Electronic Assistance Program 
database, which can be used to access 
information on state statistics, are 
new services available through 
Watson Library at NSU. 

According to Sissie Mayeaux, the 
NSU library recently became a 
member of the EdLINC network, and 
a center has been located in the 
reference department to facilitate the 

The database contains information 
about a broad variety of instructional 
and professional materials including 
books, multimedia, tests, software, 
computer, audiovisual and classroom 
equipment, professional and training 
materials, and school supplies. 

"In order to take advantage of this 
new service which is provided free to 
educators, one must suppl y the subject 
area, skills, student characteristics or 
other features which describe his of 
her educational resource needs," said 

The service can be used to access 
information on Louisiana statistics 
such as unemployment, sales tax 
revenue, agricultural production and 
directories such as chambers of 
commerce and business assistance. 

"Using a microcomputer and 
modem, database housed atNortheast 
Louisiana University in Monroe can 
be assessed and downloaded," 
Mayeaux said. "Unlike traditional 
computer searching, the information 
is pulled directly from the files and 
adjustments cannot be made online. 
Also, the informauon is broken down 
in different ways for different files." 

The call is toll free and Watson 
Library supplies the computer and 
expertise for the searching.

heard," said T. Carter Ross, the new 
station manager. 

The new slogan, "Next Wave," 
reveals the attitude of the station. 
Instead of latching on to a trend in 
music, KNWD plans on starting 

"In an effort to better serve 
Natchitoches and students of NSU, 
KNWD will continue along the 
gradual change of the last few years 
to a variety of music," said Ross. To 
support this movement, it will be a 

24-hour radio station, the only one of 
its kind in Natchitoches. Ross said 
that it will be about a week before the 

24- hour format is fully operational. 
The station also purchased a new 

transmitter over the summer, boosting 
its power to 250 watts. This will 
enable KNWD to reach a radius of 

25- 30 miles. "KNWD is going to be 
very visible and very loud this year," 
said Ross. 

There will be more progressive, 
rock and hip-hop music in the format, 

according to Ross. More 
shows on new releases in the reggae, 
gospel and rap genres will also be 

There will be an abundance of 
disk jockey s this year. Over 70 people 
attended the organizational meeting 
last week expressing more interest 
than ever before, according to Ross. 
'They seem enthusiastic and we can't 
wait to hear them," Ross said. 

KNWD also plans on being a 
connection between the community 

and the campus. As a part of this 
effort, Mayor Joe Sampite has spot 
on the air welcoming new students to 
Natchitoches and promoting KNWD 
as the "news station of Natchitoches. " 

The scheduling for this semester 
will offer something for everyone. 
There will be college music at noon 
from Monday to Thursday. From 
Thursday at noon to Saturday at 3 
p.m. will be "loud music." There will 
be a jazz show from 3-6 p.m. on 
Saturday, with the rest of the night 

devoted to dance music. From 9 to 
noon on Sunday mornings, there will 
be gospel music.Sunday afternoon 
and evenings will feature hip-hop 
and soul. 

Special programs include Reggae 
Forward on Monday nights, the 
Wonder Twins from 6-9 p.m. on 
Wednesdays, followed by Griffin's 
Edge, which will feature new 
releases— "Fresh, def trax," 
according to Ross.

Things got pretty competitive for this job. I'm 
sure my college degree and good grades kept 
me in the running. But in the end it was the 
leadership and management experience I got 
through Army ROTC that won them over. 

Army ROTC taught me responsibility, self- 
discipline and leadership. Those are things you 
just can't learn from a textbook. 

I don't know where I'd be right now if I

Freshmen find Northwestern 'quite an experience' Exit 

Moving in, registration bother some, others enjoy first week at college 

Staff Writer 

Registration? Rush? What 
roommate? Did you say community 
showers? It seems the life of a college 
freshman is filled with strange new 
experiences and feelings. There are 
so many things to do in such a small 
amount of time. 

Many freshman leave the lines at 
Prather wondering, "Is there life al ter 
registration?" Judging t:om the 
laughs ot the upperclassmen when 
they spot a completely disillusioned 
and bewildered freshman , it is obvious 
there must be. 

This reporter is from a small school 
as are many new arrivals at 
North western, so he thought he would 
talk to some of the freshman and get 
a glimpse at how their first week was 
turning out. 

Chris Thompson, a physical 
education major from Rapine, 
found that moving into the dorms "a 
real rough experience. Packing ail 
my stuff up four flights of stairs was 
not too much fun." However, said 
Thompson, die bright side to it was 
making new friends. 

Kevin Wall, a broadcast 
journalism major fiom Cle Elum, 
Wash., said the Northwestern' s 
reputation drew ium here "I came 
down to NSU because 1 thought it 
was the best college for my major, 
and also the majority of my relatives 
live in Louisiana. My parents are 
moving down soon also." 

Wall said that the culture in 
Louisiana is completely different 
from that in Washington. I like the 
tanned girls and I love une way they 
talk," he said. 

As almost everybody knows, the 
first semester of living in a dorm can 
be quite an experience, but the 
freshmen seem to be holding up 
rather well. 

"Although moving into the dorm 
was difficult, so far college is exactly 
what I expected," said Michelle 
Genre, a journalism major from Baton 
Rouge. "And even though the air 
doesn't work on my floor, I love it!" 

Genre said that next year s 
freshmen can and should really look 
forward to college. ' Get involved 
with everything you can and keep 
your grades up," she advised.

Greek Rush exciting, but 'scary at times' 


Staff Writers 

Students participating in 
Northwestern's Greek Rush 
witnessed the transformation of the 
Natchitoches campus from a hot 
relatively unpopulated area to a 
scorching one filled with students 
trudging to Prather Coliseum for 
registration, moving into dormitories 
and searching for classes. The lack of 
parking spaces evidences the large 
return of students to Northwestern 
for the fall semester and relatively 
quick lines in registration show a 
system undergoing improvements. 

Rushees arrived on campus on 
Aug. 23. For many new and returning 
students, Rush was an event to meet 
people. For incoming students, Rush 
makes this social process more 

organized and concentrated. 

For Dana Gunter, a freshman from 
Dodson, La., Rush was an exciting 
experience but proved scary at times. 
Before entering the first sorority house 
party on the first day of rush, Gunter 
heard noises coming from inside the 
houses and wondered what she had 
gotten herself into. With the initial 
motivation being just to meet people, 
Gunter changed her mind after the 
second day's parties, deciding that 
she wanted to pledge one of 
Northwestern's three sororities. 

Along with Gunter, Gretchin 
Dupree, a sophomore at NSU, 
changed her mind and decided to join 
a sorority. 

"At first, I decided to just go 
through Rush to meet other students. 
But, after learning of the community - 
and campus- involvement which the 

sororities provi de, I wanted to get 
more involved with campus life," 
Dupree said, 

Some rushees who come 
preferring one Greek organization, 
sometimes discover that they are 
leaning toward a different 
organization by the end of the week. 

"At first I came to NSU with the 
intentions to pledge a certain 
fraternity," said Thomas Scott, an 
incoming freshman at NSU. "Butby 
the end of the week I changed my 
mind. I felt more comfortable in the 
new fraternity." 

As Rush week progressed, many 
rushees found that deciding which 
Greek organization to pledge was no 
simply task. "You meet so many girls 
that it is hard to remember their 
names," remarked Robin Kleinpeter, 
asophomoreatNSU. "Having friends

ce'Exit to perform at first tailgate party 

^ Contributor 


After ten months of hibernation, 

rock band Exit has resurfaced on 

be regional music scene. 

The band is alive and kicking as 

Northwestern students will find out 

or themselves at the "TNT" party 

all the bis Saturday before the Demons

■ ■ When asked why the group 

ecided to end the break, drummer 
:hris Lefebvre said, "One, we've

*Vo, we want to play together again 
Wash! ngt<fc a group." 

For nearly 10 months, the band 
members went their separate ways. 
"We decided to take on other 
projects," Dupuy said. "I played for 
Betty Lewis and the Executives, and 
the other guys pursued solo projects." 
During the 10 months, however, the 
musicians kept in touch with each 

Exit was founded eight years ago 
by guitarist Greg Fulco and lead 
vocalist Danny Orton, who are still 
with the band. Also in the band are 
bass playerChris Michaels, drummer 
Chris Lefebvre and keyboard player 
Dwayne Dupuy. 

In their early days, Exit could be 
seen in such Shreveport night spots 
as Humpfrees, Seven Sisters, 
Steamboat Annies and Circle in the 


Exit also recorded an album, 
" Younglife," which includes the song 
"So Long." 

To date the high point of Exit's 
career came when the band's music 
video, "Kayla," won the MTV 
"Basement Tapes" competition. 

"It was kind of weird," Fulco said 
of the MTV victory. "There was a lot 
of hype and a lot of publicity, and 
then it just died." 

Unlike many bands that try to make 
it in the music industry, Exit's 
•nusicians are employed elsewhere. 
Fulco and Orton are firemen. Dupuy 
and Michaels are both teaching 
privately after receiving bachelor's 
degree from Northwestern in May. 

"It's kind of a catch-22. You can

No joke. If the state's best 
and brightest (that's you) leave 
after graduation, Louisiana can 
kiss tomorrow good-bye. 

Times are tough enough 
without an increase in what's 
called the "brain drain." But it 
isn't just your brain we 

> need. It's your energy, your 
dreams, your belief in 
die future. 

> On the ( >tlier hand, we 
can't real ly expect you to 

stay if there aren't any jobs waiting for you when you graduate. 

So the state's investor-owned electric companies are working 
on a wide array of economic development programs designed to 
create new jobs for Louisiana. These programs, for the most 
part, are directed at bringing in out-of-state employers, so they 
aren't very visible inside the state. But believe us, tlie programs 
are out there. And they have been since before you entered 
the first grade. 

After all, we're the folks who least want to see the lights 
turned off in Louisiana! 
Louisiana. Ready, willing, and 
very capable.

trying to take an intelligent approach. 
We'll keep our jobs to make money 
and play good music," said one band 

Exit plays cover tunes by such 
artists as Bad English, Winger, Giant, 
Dan Reed Network, Living Color 
and others. As for original songs, 
"We have 5 or 6 that are ready to go 
with more on the way," said Dupuy. 

Exit will not record another 
unsigned album. Instead, the group 
will most likely release a cassette 
single. Several record labels have 
expressed an interest in Exit 

At the 'TNT" party, Exit will 
perform various cover tunes and 
premiere a remake of "So Long." 
"We went back and listened to it, and

training. During his stay, the New Orleans native got the opportunity t >s DJv

Huddleston gets a kick out of summer 

Louisiana Scholars' College senior studies Tae Kwon Do in Korea 

Staff Writer 

Probably few Northwestern 
students had a summer as exciting as 
Todd Huddleston's. The Scholars' 
College senior spent two months in 
Seoul, South Korea, studying Tae 
Kwon Do karate. 

Huddleston, 21, has practiced the 
sport for 12 years and has earned a 
third degree black belt He says he 
was fortunate for the opportunity to 
study Tae Kwon Do in the country. 

"I learned new stretching exercises 
and my kicks got faster and better," 

he said. "There is a big emphasis on 
kicks in the sport in Korea." His main 
instructor was Young Sun Kim. 

The math major has won many 
Tae Kwon Do tournament 
championships over the years. 

Huddleston's American instructor, 
Myoung Kuk Park, arranged for him 
to stay with his sister during his visit. 
The family's five members taught 
the New Orleans native customs of 
their country, including the fact that 
Koreans consider wearing sunglasses 
rude because the eyes are hidden. 

Park instructed Huddleston to bow 

the old Korean way (with the head 
almost touching the knees) during his 
studies in New Orleans. The Koreans 
were impressed since today most Tae 
Kwon Do practitioners only make a 
short, nodding bow, said Huddleston. 

The prestigious Yonsei University 
was the site of the majority of 
Huddleston's karate classes. He 
worked out three times a day for three 
days and two times a day for three 
days. On Sundays he got a well- 
deserved rest. 

While in Korea, he visited grand 
palaces, Buddhist temples and the 

38th Parallel, where South Korea 
meets Communist North Korea. He 
remembers Seoul as a modem city 
with very old customs. 

Huddleston says he enjoyed his 
trip tremendously and plans to return 
to South Korea again someday to 
study the ancient art of Tae Kwon 

Huddleston is a member of Kappa 
Alpha Order, and is active in Blue 
Key and the Student Government

>emons can 'get off on right track 1 with home games 


Sports Writer 

For the 1990 Northwestern State 
jemons, this preseason draws 
arallels with the 1988 preseason. 
*w -- ~ lead coach Sam Goodwin can only 
—^ope that this season ' s end result will 
mirror that of 1988's. 
The 1988 Demons, pinned to a 
^ ourth-place finish by the preseason 
ioUs, surmounted a taxing road 
chedule and claimed first-place in 
he Southland Conference. This year, 
he Demons must once again 
>r, studied Vg™"*? arduous road schedule 
r. Huddlestonf «l">™°? ** SLC ^ from 
ster during t^ hen f RAusQn - 
opportunity t Confe , re » ce . road games mclude 
sst year s Division I-AA runner-up 
I tephen F. Austin, 1990 consensus 
avorite Northeast Louisiana, the 
lways-talented North Texas Eagles 
nd McNeese State. Also, the Demons 
tep out of conference play to travel 
d Arkansas State and Jackson State. 

However, all is not gloomy. The 
)emons have depth and a passel of 

athletes in stock, especially on 
offense. But there are questions to 
settle, like who will Scott Stoker's 
successor be? 

Junior Andrew Roach and 
sophomoreBrad Brown arelocked in 
a nip-and-tuck battle for the 
quarterback job. In the spring, 
Goodwin noted that Roach is more of 
a pure passer while Brown is a better 
runner. Both players continue to 
progress at a promising rate with 
neither pulling away as a clear 
favorite. Goodwin may in fact employ 
a two-quarterback system once again . 

The backfield looks as deep as 
ever. Junior Brian Driskell is penciled 
in as the fullback, but redshirt 
freshman Guy Hedrick has come on 
with fury, displaying his multiple 
talents. Chad Morrow also figures to 

Goodwin will install a four-man 
shuttle at tailback. Size is lacking 
here, but speed and quickness isn't. 
James McKellum (5-8, 160) will get 

the call, but Randy Wright (5-7,158), 
Deon Ridgell (5-7, 171) and Darius 
Adams (5-7, 163) will all have a hand 
in the tailback-by-committee. 

The receiving corps brings speed 
and depth to the Demon scheme of 
things. Eddy Johnson continues to 
impress in practice and will be the 
flanker. Jerry Roberson returns to 
play split end. Other names to watch 
include John Tappin, Victor 
Robinson, SteveBrown and freshman 
sensation Pete SpratL 

Junior Carlos Treadway retains 
his tight end slot. Treadway was 
recognized as one of Division I- AA's 
eminent tight ends by The Sporting 

The key to any successful offense 
is a strong offensive line, and the 
Demons have their biggest and, 
perhaps, best line ever. Center John 
King and tackle Steve Freeman are 
All-SLC caliber, while guard Bill 
Britt, tackle Mike Owens and guard 
Bo Milton bring more experience. 

Also, guard Ricky Jones will see 
considerable time. 

After losing nine starters, the 
Demon defense would seem to be on 
wobbly legs. Not necessarily so. 

All-American candidates Greg 
Necaise, a defensive end, and Andre 
Carron, a linebacker, return to fortify 
the ranks. Necaise recorded 1 3 sacks 
last year, and Carron notched an 
incredible 152 total tackles. 

The Demons were also willing 
beneficiaries of the demise of Lamar's 
football program. The Demons 
lassoed Lamar standouts Troy Knight, 
a defensive end, and Ron Davis, a 
safety, after the Cardinals dropped 
football. Both look to be stars for the 

Triand McCoy and LSU transfer 
Jason Delmore should fill out the 
defensive tackle spots with plenty of 
help from George Salsberry. 

Sophomore Brannon Rowlett and 
junior Randy Bullock will joinCarron 
as linebackers. Depth is a concern 

here. Anthony Kelley and Edward 
Moses will lend a hand. 

The Demons incurred massive 
losses in the secondary, with the top 
five players having departed. 
Fortunately , numerous reserv es return 
to move up to the front lines. Talented 
sophomores Adrian Hardy and J J. 
Eldridge will man the corners with 
Davis and Rob Floyd as the safeties. 

Floyd recenUy suffered a severe 
hamstring pull and is out indefinitely. 
Redshirt freshmen Fred Thompson 
or Jarvis Conic may step up should 
Floyd be out of service for this 
Saturday night's home and season 
opener against Eastern Illinois. Chad 
McDavid and Ed Holmes figure to 
see time at comerback. 

Senior Chris Hamler will handle 
the placekicking chores, but he may 
be pressed by junior college transfer 
Maker Scobel. Handling the punting 
duties will be Scobel. 

The road contests will be rigorous, 
but the Demons can find solace in the 
fact that the first three games are at 
home, a luxury they could use to bolt 
out of the gate and develop 

"We've got a real hard road 
schedule," said Goodwin. "But we 
had the same situation two years ago. 

"Northwestern, in the 1980s, did 
not have a losing season in an even- 
numbered year. We open with three 
home games, a chance to get off on 
the right track and develop some 
confidence. If we get out of the gate 
quickly, who knows what could 

The Demons open their season 
against Eastern Illinois Saturday night 
in Turpin Stadium. The Panthers 
return 12 starters from last season's 
Division I-AA quarter finalist. They 
promise to give the Demons a sterr 
battle. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.

Respect seems to be no easy 
quisition for Sam Goodwin's 
otball team. 

Most sapient pollsters have 
irmarked the Northwestern State 
emons for a third or fourth-place 
inference finish, an assessment that, 
i the surface, seems to defy logic. 

Scanning the depth chart, you 
slight at the prospects. There's 
eed, talent and depth at every turn, 
lie rotation of runningbacks and 
ceivers brims with ability, the 
icondary packs skill and the 
Tensive line offers more size and 
length than any of its predecessors, 
rhen there's sackman Greg Necaise 
mying opponents' backfields and 
>ne-jolting linebacker Andre Carron 
Dised to separate ballcarrier from 
ality. Throw in a pair of All- 
merican candidates in Lamar 
insfers Troy Knight and Ron Davis, 
id you ' ve got the stuff of champions, 


Not so fast, say the experts. You've 
got company. 

Oh, there's no disputing the claims 
that our Demons are virtually 
inundated with talent. It's just that 
the rosters of three or four of their 
conference neighbors look equally or 
even more imposing. 

The hurdles in question include 
Stephen F. Austin, Northeast 
Louisiana, North Texas and, possibly, 
McNeese State. Gasp! The term 
"Taking them one at a time" may be 
a time-honored platitude, but it's the 
only way for the Demons or anyone 
else to conduct business in these parts. 

Let's come in for a closer peek. 
There is the Stephen F. Austin 
Lumberjacks, wearers of the SLC 
crown and last year's Division I-AA 
runner-up. Look for the 'Jacks to fly 
with the Wright brothers. That's 
receiver Eric Wright and tight end 
Derrick Wright, a pair of Ail- 

Northeast Louisiana commands 
the most attention of the pack this 
year. The Indians are in everyone's 
Top 20 and some people's Top Five. 
They return 20 starters, including 
quarterback Doug Pederson and 
running back Cisco Richard. Many 
prognostica tors are ticketing them for 
the SLC penthouse. 

Then there's perennial preseason 
glamour team North Texas. In recent 
preseasons, the Eagles had been 
expected to soar high, but lofty 
expectations sent them spiraling into 
a slow burn. Nonetheless, high hopes 
still circulate in Denton, for renowned 
quarterback Scott Davis returns for 
one last campaign. 

The McNeese State Cowboys may 
be a bit of a reach as a possible 
champ, but they have a premise for 
hope. The 'Pokes boast of what could 
be the SLC's preeminent secondary 
and a speedy supply of young running

stiffest conference competition. The 
alarming factis thatGoodwin'sgroup 
faces all four of those contenders 
away from their Turpin playhouse. 
The talent is there in considerable 
quantities for the Demons, but a little 
prayer may expedite matters. 
The road challenges don ' t end there, 
For good measure, the Demons also 
have powers Arkansas State and 
Jackson State on their 1990 itinerary. 
ASU is preparing for a move up to 
Division I- A, and JSU still looks lethal 
after administering a 27- 14 lashing to 
the Demons last season in front of a 
Turpin Stadium and ESPN audience. 
JSU's Tim Barnett is trumpeted as 
the Southwestern Athletic 
Conference's best receiver since a 
fellow named Jerry Rice snared 
touchdown passes for Mississippi 
Valley State. 

So there it is. The real obstacles 
are on the road. The groundwork is in 
place. The Demons just hope it 
doesn't open up beneath their very 
feet and consume them.

The construction of the new 
bachelor of fine arts program at 
Northwestern has begun its long 
journey for approval, but is now 
faced with a temporary set back. 

The proposal for the new degree 
program will be delayed until Oct. 
15 so the Louisiana Board of Regents 
can "refine the process of role scope 
admission," said Dr. Edward 
Graham, vice president of academic 
affairs. "They are saying this deferral 
will not lengthen the process." 

Receiving an approval for a new 
degree program is a lengthy process 
which can take up to one or one and 
a half years. Bill Brent, head of the 
Department of Creative and 
Performing Arts, explained that the 
department is "hoping to have it in 
place this coming fall." 

The proposal is sent first to the 
curriculum review council which 
will "internal ly look at the program," 
Graham explained. If the proposal is 
approved by the council it will then 
be submitted to the Louisiana Board 

Artists workshops to 
be held Friday 

The Northwestern Theater 
Department is sponsoring guest artist 
workshops Friday at the A. A. 
Fredericks Fine Arts Building. The 
workshops are open to all theater 
and fine arts students. 

Mark Torres, founder of the 
Moving Target Theatre Company, 
will hold acting workshops at 1 and 
2 p.m. Lisa Tromovitch, a stage 
manager and director who has been 
with Moving Target since 1 988, will 
hold a stage management workshop 
at 10:30 a.m.

takes into consideration the

If the bachelor of fine arts degree 
is passed, the program will be 
"closely linked to a theater degree 
but will also encompass the areas of 
dance and musical theater," Brent

students are involved in some aspect

students who say that athletics should 
not be funded by student tuition. 
However, he says, "it's just a matter 
of balancing it with the university." 

Others are not as forgiving as the 
president. "It really does infuriate 
me that one-third of my tuition goes 

to send jocks to college," said Kelley 
Graham, a senior English major from 
New Orleans. "Why don't they fund 
something that needs it, like the 
teachers or the library?" Currendy, 
Northwestern spends 7.3 percent of 
its budget on athletics with only 3.5 
percent financing its library. 

"I love athletics — they make the 
college experience much more 
exciting," says Bill Johnson, a senior 
business and English major from 
Simpson. "But NSU will never be 

known for its athletics like LSU or 
Texas A&M. They need to realize 
that and spend less money." 

Johnson, treasurer for the Student 
Government Association, feels the 
university is wasting its time 
spending millions on its sports teams. 

"It does no good to spend all this 
money for Division I-AA athletics 
when they could spend less and 
contribute the same to NSU. Name 
one Division I-AA school known 
for its athletic programs," he said. 

Award- winning Ray Bradbury 
to present speech Thursday 

Staff Writer 

;| One of the most famous science 
fiction writers, Ray Bradbury, will 
be speaking to the faculty and student 
body of Northwestern at 1 1 a.m. on 
Thursday at the A. A Fredericks 
Fine Arts Auditorium. 

Known worldwide for works such 
as The Martian Chronicles and 
Fahrenheit 451, the news of 
Bradbury' sengagement here has 
been met with enthusiasm among 
both the faculty and students of the 

Fans of Bradbury are among a 
rather elite group, with people such 
as Mikhail and Raisa Gorbachev. In 
fact, when the Gorbachevs last 
visited the United States, they 
specifically requested an 
introduction to Bradbury and that he 
be invited to a luncheon at the Soviet 

Dr. Daryl Coats, professor of 
English at Northwestern, is very 
pleased about Bradbury's scheduled 
appearance. Coats is planning on 

teaching a course devoted to science 
fiction in the spring, and intends to 
include 77ie Martian Chronicles and 
two of Bradbury's short stories. 

"He's my favorite living writer," 
said Coats, "He's able to recapture 
childhood and part of that childish 
sense of awe and wonder." 

"He's the first writer to succeed 
in bringing science fiction out of the 
ghetto," Coats said, referring to the 
early part of the century when only 
hard-core fans of science fiction were 
interested in the magazines of that 
genre. According to him, Bradbury 
brought science fiction into the 
mainstream through his publication 
in conventional magazines and 
through his television and radio 

Bradbury is one of the more 
exclusive speakers on the college 
circuit, and according to many 
students, Northwestern is privileged 
to have him here. Sophomore 
Jennifer Lefeux said, "My friends at 
LSU are jealous, but I'm really 
excited. I can't wait to hear him." 

Don Barker, counselor at the 
Louisiana Scholars' College, feels 
that this is a tremendous opportunity 
for the students. "He and Ben Bova 
are two of the very best writers of 
science fiction in this century." 

Andy Kimball, a junior from 
Plaucheville, first came into contact 
with Bradbury's works through the 
Ray Bradbury Theater on cable and 
the television movie The Martian 
Chronicles. He later read the book 
and was impressed by Bradbury's 
complex portrayal of alien life. 

"I'm happy that Northwestern is 
getting him to speak," Kimball said, 
"He's a very good author and I admire 
his work." 

Connie Cross, a freshman from 
Pineville, has read The Martian 
Chronicles and The Toynbee 
Convector. When asked what in 

Bradbury's writing appealed to her, 
she replied, "The eroticism — it 
makes you use your mind. You have 
to define your own reality when you 
read him." 

Center plans workshops, Career Day 


Staff Writer 

The Center for Career Planning 
and Placement is offering fall 
workshops to acquaint seniors with 
the variety of services and activities 
provided. These workshops will deal 
with resume/letter writing and 
interview/job search skills. Their 
purpose is to allow seniors to obtain 
the skills needed to find employment 
after graduation. 

The workshops will take place in 
room 321 of the Student Union. The 
resume/letter writing workshop will 
be held today from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 
p.m. and on Wednesday from 1 1 a.m. 
to noon and from 3 to 4 p.m. 

The interview/job search workshop 
will be held on Thursday from 1 1 a.m. 
to noon and from 3 to 4 p.m. and on 
Tuesday, Sept. 18 from 6:30 to 7:30 

Frances Conine, director of the 
Center for Career Planning and 
Placement, stresses the importance of 
having these skills. 

"Many people have the degrees, 
but few have the skills to actually find 
the job," she said. 

The office is open until 8 p.m. on 
Tuesday nights so that commuter 
students and others may attend. Seniors 
need to come by the office so that their 
files, which are used in helping 
companies find prospective 
employees, may be started, Conine 

Companies such as CLECO, JC 
Penney 's, Conoco, and others are 
already scheduled to come to the 
campus this fall to interview. 

Another program sponsored by the 
Office of Career Planning and 
Placement is Career Day, to be 
conducted Sept 21 at Northwestern. 

Reservations are being accepted from 
businesses and industries in the region 
interested in participating in the day- 
long event 

Scheduled from 8: 30 a.m. to 3 p.m. 
at the Student Union, Career Day is 
being sponsored in cooperation with 
Louisiana Tech University and 
Northeast Louisiana University. 

"This presents itself as a fair to 
foster career awareness among entering 
students," said Conine. "At the same 
time, we hope this will fine-tunecareer 
choices for older students and will 
help get them placements in business 
or industry." 

Even if a business or industry is not 
hiring new people at this time, Conine 
said that Career Day lends itself well to 
public relations efforts among the 
general public. 

For more information, contact 
Frances Conine at 357-5621. 

Northwestem's literary magazine, 
will be distributed Wednesday, said 
1990-1991 editor Madelyn 

"Student should look for Argus in 
boxes next to the Current Sauce 
crates in Kyser Hall, the Student 
Union, Russell Hall and all dorms," 
said Boudreaux. 

For more information on Argus, 
contact Boudreaux at 357-4397. 

Itza Pizza, SAB plan 
new student activities 

Students can now watch their 
favorite teams on Monday Night 
Football, a new feature every week 
beginning at 8 p.m. in Itza Pizza. 

Itza Pizza is also beginning to 
show Monday Movie Matinees in 
conjunction with the Student 
Activities Board. "We wanted to let 
as many people as possible see our 

movies this year," said Carl Henry, 
SAB advisor. "So we're showing 
matinees in Itza Pizza on Monday in 
addition to our regular Tuesday night 
showings and our Wednesday night 
dorm showings." 

Monday Movie Matinees will 
begin next Monday at noon with the 
movie Dad. 

Christensen honored at 
retirement reception 

A reception was held last 
Thursday to honor Raymond L. 
Christensen, who retired this summer 
after 24 years as an associate

the Student Branch of Industrial 
Electrical Electronics Engineers 
(IEEE) and Iota Lambda Sigma, the 
national honorary professional 
fraternity in industrial technology. 

Honored in the spring of 1990 as 
co-winner of the Natchitoches Parish 
Outstanding Older Worker Award, 
Christensen is a past president of the 
Natchitoches Lions Club and the

Outside revenues must 
fund sports, not students 

Sports are an integral part of any university and Northwestern is no 
different. The athletic programs here provide innumerable opportunities for 
both athletic advancement, student involvement and school spirit. But as 
always, there's a fly in the liniment. 

The Louisiana Board of Regents, which sets policy for all state colleges, 
has forbidden universities to use taxpayers' funds (read: student money) to 
field athletic teams. That ruling was two years ago and according to a recent 
report released by the Regents, Northwestern and almost all other state 
schools have totally ignored it. 

According to the report, $260 out of every Northwestern student's tuition 
goes directly to the university's athletic program. Only students atNicholls 
State University in Thibodaux spend more than we do; NSU is second in the 
state for overall athletic spending from overall student tuition — a dubious 
distinction, at best. x 

Where is all the monjif'f going? These great expenditures could be 
justified if our teams wduid show their worth, but as this weekend evi- 
denced, student money has once again gone down the tubes. 

Many students, teachers and even administrators have expressed outrage 
because money intended for academics has instead gone out to the fieldhouse. 
Northwestern is where students come first, say some, not athletes. 

"We should find new 
ways to fund the Demons 
and let students pay for an 
education, not season 

It's an incredible thought that every single college in Louisiana (with the 
exception of Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, which has a 
virtually self-sufficient athletic program) pays absolutely no attention to a 
policy set up by the Board which creates rules for universities. 

Blame cannot be specifically laid upon any one person or group. It is 
disturbing, however, that our athletic program must violate a state ruling to 
obtain funds while our university's academic section suffers from lack of 

A solution to this problem should be actively sought. Perhaps prices for 
admission to games could be raised. The Booster Club and Alumni 
Association could possibly ask for more. Students could even be asked for 
voluntary (note that word voluntary — don't try and slip it in under the 
heading "Tuition" on fee sheets) monetary support. 

Whatever the solution, we should find new ways to fund the Demons and 
let students pay for an education, not season tickets.

Vietnam a reference for present conflicts 

Perceptions colored by 'darkest period in U.S. history' 

The fall of the Berlin wall and 
freedom of movement in and through 
the Iron Curtain adroitly hailed the 
end of the Cold War. Not quite so 
ceremoniously and completely 
without that fanfare is the end of 
something that had no such definite 
break, something that could be called 
the Vietnam Syndrome. 

Vietnam is glibly heralded as one 
of the darkest times in U.S. history. 
It had painted such an ugly picture of 
war in the minds of American people 
that from that time until now, the 
American people have been more 
than reticent to endorse any sort of 
military use. During the Carter 
administration there was the Iranian 
hostage crisis, the first time since the 
Vietnam conflict that the United 
States was called on to defend itself. 
Liberating the hostages with 
helicopters was a proposition that 
came under fire from the people 
because it would have risked 
American lives. Incidentally, the 
operation failed miserably. 

Reagan saw the end of this 
situation in his first weeks of office. 
This boosted the morale of the 
general public and gave them an 
inclination to support Reagan. With 
a little less resistance, Reagan ended 
the coup in Grenada and once again 
secured democracy in the Western 
Hemisphere. By this time, the 
Reagan Era was in full swing, and 
there were few dissenting voices 
against him when the bombs fell on 

George Bush was carried in on 
the shoulders of the past conservative 
administration, and the waves of 
public sentiment washed on him the 
same way as on Reagan. Bush rallied 
the Americans behind him on 
"Operation Just Cause" to remove 

f - - 1 


Kent LaBorde 

that canker named Noriega from our 
proximity and have him under our 
supervision instead. Now with 
Kuwait in Iraq's borders, public 
sentiment is in full-out fervor for the 
use of the military as the deciding 
force in resolving this situation. 

In 20 years the entire complexion 
of American public opinion has made 
a complete 180-degree turn, and we 
hardly ever noticed. Is it that we 
have a larger cause for us to back, a 
bigger banner to wave now than we 
did then? Perhaps also it's just that 
the circumstances are different. 

It is difficult to find any 
justifications for our involvement in 
Vietnam. The military was there for 
so long without ever having any 
significant successes, serving only 
to further salt the wounds of 
American morale caused by the 
drawing of the 38th parallel in Korea. 
Another point is that the Americans 
weren't clear about what they were 
fighting. The people knew it was to 
"halt the spread of Communism and 
to free the world for the unstoppable 
savior, democracy." The average 
American had no idea of what 
communism was, much less Leninist/ 
Stalinist communism. The anger was 
confused and often misdirected 
because it is difficult to manifest 
hatred against an enigmatic abstract. 
Finger-pointing reactionaries like 
Joseph McCarthy didn't help much 


On the other hand, through the 
graces of a healing period, time and 
distance from this mindset have 
provided the general public with a 
different attitude. When we look 
back, instead of failures like Korea, 
we have the aforementioned 
successes to fall back on. This seems 
to have eased in the minds of the 
American people the fear of a 
humiliation and the fear of loss of 
life without anything to show for it. 
Also, now the situation is really very 
tangible and thanks to the major 
networks, the situation is close at 
hand and all too understandable. The 
enemies are much more concrete 
and detestable: MoammarQuaddafi, 
Manuel Noriega, Saddam Hussein. 
Names, faces, dispositions and 
personalities are much more 
effective in swaying public opinion 
than concepts. 

Ho Chi Minh never had his own 
despised cult of personality, but 
Saddam Hussein is hated in this 
country as easily as someone like 
George Steinbrenner. Could this be 
because we are more aware of major 
figures through the overly dramatic 
and sensationalistic media? Thanks, 
Diane Sawyer. 

It's difficult to narrow thechanges 
to these few things. The acceptance 
of this deployment is definitely 
affected by other things such as a

'Left' column just 
a load of garbage 


Junior, Natchitoches 

This is in response to Thomas 
Easterling's "From the Left." 

First of all, I'd like to know how 
long you've been a military expert. 
You must have studied for years to 
come up with as bold a prediction as 
"when American and Iraqi forces 
clash this year." Think zb&tl it. It's 
already September. There are only 
four months left in the year. Who did 
you study under, Miss Jane? Miss 
Jane is a fortune teller on Highway 6 
for those of you who did not know. 
And how is it you are able to 
speculate on PresidentBush's plans? 

If you knew anything about U.S. 
military doctrine, you would know 
that our strategy would be to beat 
them from a distance with our 
advanced weaponry and not in head 
to head clashes. The Iraqi forces 
have many Russian made weapons 
and probably have had Russian 
military advisors. Russian doctrine 
involves using mass numbers with 
many casualties expected and 
acceptable. If there were to be a war, 
we would avoid "bone-crushing" 
collisions. And as far as crossing the 
line, it would only be done if Iraq 
were to incite such action. 

President Bush would have no 
choice but to do so if Hussein were 
to start killing Western hostages, or 
any hostages for that matter. Middle 
Eastern radicals are notorious for 
such actions, and Hussein certainly 
qualifies as one. He used chemical 
weapons not only on Iran, but also 
on his own people. Now he has 
attacked a peaceful country without 
warning or justification, except for 
greed and want of expansion. His 
troops have looted and robbed 
everything in sight in Kuwait. Gees, 
that sounds strangely familiar to 
someone I learned about in history. 

By the way.notonly does acease- 
fire exist between Iraq and Iran, but 
they have also had talks since the 
Kuwait incident. Something about 
giving Iran disputed territory that 
helped to start the war in the first 
place so that maybe Iraqi forces could 
be withdrawn from there. Wow.what 
a concept. You do remember that 
little war, don't you? It lasted about 
eight years or so and cost Iran 
millions, possibly billions, of dollars 
and thousands of lives. Its the one 
were Iraq used chemical weapons. 
So what do you think the likelihood 
that Iran would want to start another 
conflict with Iraq? Saudi Arabia has 
been a long time ally of America. 
How quick do you think Iran would 
be to defend any ally of America. 

In conclusion, Mr. Easterling, I 
found your column to be, as a whole, 
a load of garbage. I love my country 
and the freedoms that go hand-in- 
hand with America, but when 
bleeding-heart daisy pickers like you 
write things like what you wrote, 
I'm almostashamed. You even went 
as far as doubting the convictions of 
the American people in reference to 
their support of their brothers, sisters, 
sons and daughters in Saudi Arabia. 
I have personal friends who are 
preparing to go there from Fort Polk 
and I dare you, I repeat, dare you to 
doubt my convictions to my face. 
I'm not old enough to remember the 
social turmoil of Vietnam, and I 
know embarrassingly little about it. 
But I do know that if I were to read 
very much more garbage like your 
column, it would not take me long to 
become a very angry person. 

What has NSU done 
for you lately? 


Where is Northwestern going? 
And why? 

Three years ago I left high school 
and came to what I felt at the time 
was one of the best universities in 
the state of Louisiana. Maybe it was 
not as academically advanced as 
Tulane, Loyola or LSU, but 

Northwestern was advanced in 
personal relations, school spirit and 
a strange sort of unity. So now, as I 
walk the crowded halls of Kyser hall 
for my fourth year, I am wondering 
where the Northwestern State 
University I knew has gone. 

Enrollment is up for the second 
year in a row so rumor has it, since 
the administration will not release 
official figures. But what good does 
it do when you cannot provide the 
students with the classes they want? 
There does not seem to be enough 
teachers to offer the variety of classes 

A crowded campus and a large 
enrollment may look good 
statistically, but it is not worth 
anything if you cannot make the 
students happy? 

More people sure makes parking 
a pain . Where do you put the vehicles 
of off campus students, those who 
make up a large part of 
Northwestern 's enrollment? I know 
you hear this every year, but 
nothing's being done about it. 

Has Northwestern gotten so big 
that it has forgotten those who 
matter? What about what we want? 
Nobody seems to hear what we have 
been saying for years. I'm not trying 
to stir up anything. I am just finally 
saying what many students have been 
mumbling about for the last three 

years. And I am not an expert on any 
of these complaints, I just happen to 
be an outlet for them. 

Why did it take four weeks for 
summer school students to receive 
their grades? Why haven't we heard 
what the summer school enrollment 
was? How long does it take to 
count — you can use your toes. And 
what about fall enrollment? Why 
did students have to wait until Aug. 
20 to receive the results of financial 
aid applications they filed in April? 
Okay, give Roy Hall a break. 

I hear Northwestern will not give 
the business department enough 
money to hire the teachers necessary 
for the increasing numbers of 
business majors. Instead they keep 
teachers around that students do not 
like and purposely avoid taking, 
purposely, until they limit certain 
classes to that one teacher and you 
have to take them. 

The university nurse deserves a 
raise! Have you seen how much each 
student pays for student insurance? 
Where's that money going anyway? 
And while we're speaking of staffing, 
I would love to see some new faces 
on campus! Get rid of the bankrupt 
businessman running our recreation 
complex, and your Northwestern 
news/ public relations assistant that 
has been arrested for child 
molestation. That is a felony charge, 

by the way. p Commuter

Clinical nursing students still waiting for admittance 

ail Writer 

Several North western students are 
II waiting for admittance into the 
inical nursing segment at NSU- 
ireveport while the nursing 
ministration is continuing to 
arch for solutions to the shortage 
clinical nursing teachers. 

Dr. Edward Graham, vice- 
•esident of academic affairs, 
[plained that students "wanting to 

take their clinical courses for their 
associate degree are the ones we're 
having the most trouble with." 
Students already enrolled in the 
baccalaureate program have not been 
affected and are still able to take 
their clinical classes. 

This year the number of 
applications for the clinical segment 
has been the largest ever for the 
school. The instructors were already 
teaching overloads so the 

"combination overwhelmed our 
resources," Graham stated. 

The main problem at NSU- 
Shreveport is a shortage of nursing 

"There is a nursing shortage in 
general which also means there is a 
shortage in the higher levels," 
Graham said. 

Northwestern requires every 

nursing instructor to have a masters 
degree in nursing, a requirement 
which also makes them "fair game" 
for hospitals. The nursing school 
now competes with hospitals for 

"Hospitals have seen the problem 
though and are trying to pitch in by 
letting some of their nurses serve on 
our faculty and by paying their 
salaries," Graham explained. 
The nursing school will try 

another solution by keeping the 
school operational year round. In 
the past the school in Shreveport 
only operated in the fall and spring 
semesters. Beginning in 1991, 
school will run all year so "students 
that were deferred this fall will have 
other opportunities throughout the 
year," Graham said. 

The nursing administration will 
continue to try and recruit more 
faculty, he said. "They're calling 
every school in the country that's 
trainuj^naster degree nurses an ask 
who Br graduates are so we can 
tell them the advantages of coming 
to Northwestern to teach," Graham

They find that this kind-hearted 
person is a prostitute and set her up 
in a shop so that she can have the 
respectability of an honest living. 
However, she finds no place in the

complete ruin, she disguises as a

Many of Brecht's ideas developed 
as negative attacks on the established 
conventions of the realistic stage. 
According to Parrish, Brecht's goal 
is to present a more stimulating kind 
of theatricality that will delight, 
amaze, shock, fascinate, and outrage 
the audience, and cause them to carry 

the ideas of the play from the theatre 
into their own world.

Senior Army ROTC cadets prove potential at Camp Warrioi^ol 

Demon Battalion ranks high among 2,400 cadets at six-week leadership camp 

Fifteen cadets in the U.S. Army's 
Senior Reserve Officers' Training 
Corps program at Northwestern 
successfully completed a six-week 
leadership development training 
camp conducted this summer at Fort 
Riley, Kan. 

The Army ROTC cadets 
representingNorthwestern's Demon 
Battalion were among more than 
2,400 cadets from colleges and 
universities in the Third ROTC 
Region who participated in the 
exercise, known as Camp Warrior 


Lt. Col. Royal A. Brown III, 
professor of military science and 
director of the ROTC program at 
Northwestern, said successful 
completion of Camp Warrior '90 
was a prerequisite for commissioning 
of the cadets as second lieutenants in 
the U.S. Army. 

At Camp Warrior '90, five 
Northwestern cadets finished in the 
top 10 percent. They were Stuart A 
Kidder of Brandenton, Fla.; William 
T. Welch of Natchitoches; Mark D. 

Stimer of Leesville; Barbara 
Peterson of Bremen, Federal 
Republic of Germany, and Lori A. 
Murphy of Wilkes Barre, Pa. 

Two other NSU cadets, Thelma 
L. Clay of Alexandria and Jonathan 
W. Ballard of New Llano, ranked 
among the top 30 percent of all cadets 
at Fort Riley, which is located near 
Manhattan, Kan. 

Also successfully completing six 
weeks of summer training were 
Daniel L. Bryant of Montgomery; 
Lydia A. Hilt-Clay of Alexandria; 

Lionel E. A. Ovide of New Orleans; 
Donnia M. Prelow of Campti; 
Kathryn E. Simms of Hudson, Fla.; 
James B. Thompson of Benton; 
David L. Wallace of Fort Leonard 
Wood, Mo., and Matthew N. 
Williams of Metairie. 

"Despite searing heat averaging 
over 100 degrees for weeks on end, 
a demanding schedule of tough 
training and- stressful evaluation of 
officer potential, all Northwestern 
cadets met the challenge," said 


He added, "I am extremely proud 
of all our cadets. They exceeded the 
high standards set for them." 

The 15 cadets, who begin their 
senior year of ROTC this fall, now 
serve in the key leadership and staff 
positions of the Demon Battalion 
Corps of Cadets at Northwestern. 

During their final two semesters 
of Advanced ROTC, they will plan, 
organize and execute the 1990-91 
Army ROTC Program under the 
direction of North western's military 

science department. 

LSC professor completes lectureship 

Fulbright scholar spends year teaching in Poland 

Dr. Tom Samet, an associate 
professor of English in the Louisiana 
Scholars' College, has resumed his 
duties after spending a year in 

A member of the Louisiana 
Scholars' College since its founding 
in 1987, Samet was awarded a 
Fulbright Lectureship in a 
nationwide competition and was 
appointed professor of American 
literature at Warsaw University. 

He was accompanied throughout 
his stay in Poland by his wife, Jan, 
acquisitions librarian at 
North western's Watson Memorial 
Library, and by their six-year-old 
son, Aaron. 

The Fulbright program in Poland 
is among the oldest and largest in the 
world, and Warsaw University has 
an especially strong department of 
American literature. 

"My colleagues were scholars of 
international reputation, several of 
whom have studied and taught at 
such American universities as 
Harvard and Johns Hopkins. My 
students, too, were quite 
remarkable — bright, serious, 
intellectually sophisticated — and 
compare favorably with 
undergraduates at the best American 
universities, including those at the 
Louisiana Scholars' College," said 

Mrs. Samet worked as an editor 
for the Gazeta International, the 
English-language affiliate of the 
Solidarity newspaper and the first 
politically independent English 
newspaper in Eastern Europe. She 
was also involved in library projects 
at the U.S . Embassy and at the library 
of the American Studies Center at 
Warsaw University. 

Their son attended the American 
School of Warsaw and became, 
according to his parents, the family 
expert on medieval fortifications and 

The Northwestern professor said 
that their stay abroad came at a time 
of profound political transformations 
throughout Central and Eastern 
Europe. They arrived at Poland in 
September of 1989, just as the 
Mazowiecki government was taking 

"Since then," Samet stated, "Poles 
have been struggling to establish new 
social and political institutions — 
struggling, really, to create an 
entirely new society. For us to be 
able to observe that process at close 
range was an extraordinary 

Samet gave lectures at a number 
of universities during his stay in

If you are living in 
an apartment or 
duplex, this may 
be the first 
opportunity you've 
had to experience 
the terrific benefits 
of having natural gas 
in your home. You 
will find that for 
heating your home 
during cold weather, 
for hot water, or for cooking nothing 
beats natural gas for convenience, 
economy, and efficiency. 

With cooler temperatures just around 
the corner, here are a few reminders from 
your friends at Trans La on the safe and 
responsible use of natural gas where 
you live. 

Your furnace needs an 
annual check-up. 

Your natural gas furnace has been 
sitting quiedy all summer, waiting for the 
time it's really needed. And like anything 
that's been idle a while, your furnace 
needs a checkup before it starts back to 
work You may want to check with your 
landlord or apartment manager about 
arranging for an annual inspection by a 
qualified professional heating contractor. 
Once it's been inspected, your furnace 
should require very little attention the 
rest of the winter. 

A closet isn't always a closet. 

Your water heater or furnace is 
probably in a closet all by itself And 
that's the way it should stay As tempting 
as it may be, don't use the space around a 
water heater or furnace for storage. Even 

if these major appliances sit in the open, 
the space around them should be kept 
clear to insure adequate air circulation 

If you smell gas. 

We hope that you will never have 
to deal with a gas leak If you do smell 
gas, day or night, exit the building 
immediately then call your local Trans La 
office. Do not flip light switches or use 
any other electrical equipment. Do not- 
light a match or a candle. Do not try to 
find the leak yourself. 

For more information. 
Get a free folder from your landlord or 
apartment manager. Or call your local 
Trans La office. 

Natural gas is the best energy you can 
have in Louisiana for any home heating 
job. Just set your thermostat, and have a 
great winter! WtBt A MM/F #

The performance pieces will focus 
on literature and themes involved 

rather than appearance since there is 
no budget for the series, said Wann. 

"The emphasis will not be on the 
trappings. We want to have a place 
where the process literally takes over 
the production," said Wann. 

Although the pieces are expected 
to be much shorter than a full 
production, Wann does not foresee a 
limitation. The series can include 
"anything in the realm of 
performance," from oral 
interpretation to original plays to 
performance art. 

Each evening has been assigned 
to Wann, technical director Vernon 
Carroll or assistant theatre professor 
Vicki Parrish. These faculty members 
will coordinate the event and ensure 

that it is prepared by performance 
night. The faculty member can direct 
the event or supervise the direction 
of an upperclassman. 

Wann will direct a series of 
contemporary monologues for one 
of his evenings. 

"Probably one of the pieces I'll 
do will be based on Jane Martin's 
Talking With or Maura Levy's 
Daughters," he said.

'East Meets West' 

Game to renew NLU State 

Staff Writer 

For many Northwestern students, 
the cancellation of the annual State 
Fair Classic in Shreveport due to 
low ticket sales meantno more "Rally 
in the Alley," no more rivalry and no 
more tradition. 

However, the Student 
Government Association is in the 
process of planning a new 
Northwestern tradition, "East Meets 

Under the chairmanship of Karen 
Engeron, the " East meets West" 
activities have been arranged. These 
events will occur at both the home 
and the away Northwestern versus 

Northeast games. 

"I think there will be a tremendous 
absence without the State Fair this 
year. Hopefully, 'East meets West' 
will take its place," said Engeron. 

Since activities will take place at 
both of the games against Northeast, 
buses will be chartered for the games 
in Monroe for students and 

"The SG A at Northeast is just as 
excited about the events, so they will 
have booths, music, and pep rallies 
waiting to pump up the rivalry 
between the Demons and the 
Indians," said Engeron. Likewise, 
Northwestern 's SGA will also have 


Fair rivalry 

some special occurrences waiting 
for the opponents at the home game. 

As with the past duels with 
Northeast, the winner gets the 
privilege of flying Chief Caddo's 
banner with its school on top. The 
banner can be seen now hanging in 
the Student Union with Northwestern 
on top. The scores of the upcoming 
games will determine the fate of the 
banner in the future.

SAB unveils new multi-purpose club 

Staff Writer 

Northwestern 's Student 
Activities Board is preparing to 
mnveil the Student Union's latest 
addition. What was once a bowling 
alley has been renovated and made 
intoa multi-purpose room for student 

Movies, stand-up comedians, 
dances and even live bands are just 
some of the attractions that will be 
happening in the new room. With a 
ispacious dance floor, there is enough 
room for 250 to 300 people. A live 
idisc jockey will also be available for 
all dances. 

The new room has the capabilities 
serve food but it is not definite 
at it will be used as a restaurant. 

The new room will also feature a 
bar. Because alcohol may be served, 
an I.D. will be required to get in. The 
new room is meant to replace Itza 
Pizza and the ballroom as the main 

venue for entertainment for 
Northwestern students. With more 
room now available, students will 
be able to reserve the new place for 
special events. To make reservations, 
a group would need to contact the 
SAB at 357-6511. 

The room will have a unique style 
that can be noticed upon first entering 
through its doors, said Carl Henry, 
director of organizations and student 

"This new room will feature 
memorabilia from around campus 
that will give students an idea of 
what Northwestern is really 
about,"Henry said. These objects 
will be displayed on the walls and 
set off by a new indirect lighting 

As of yet, an opening date has not 
been announced, but SAB members 
say the room is about 80 percent

Closed classes create confusion for teachers, studentNSI 

Staff Writer 

"I've tried for six straight 
semesters to get into Marketing 323," 
said Pete Radicello, a senior from 
Bossier City. 

This has been the cry of many 
Northwestern students in recent 
semesters due to the sudden "baby 
boom" of incoming freshmen. Open 
classes are becoming harder to find 
as enrollment increases but faculty 
and classroom space stay basically 
the same size. 

Freshmen enrollment is at its 
highest again this year. This 

increased enrollment is putting a 
strain on many of the freshmen-level 
courses and the faculty responsible 
for instructing them. 

"We're all pulling our hair out 
because there are not enough chairs 
in the classrooms," Dr. Sara 
Burroughs, head of the language arts 
department, said. "We were lucky 
because we were able to create five 
new sections of freshman English 
during registration to ease some 
pressure. But thebuildingis not made 
of rubber, it won't stretch." 

Stretch is exactly what 
Northwestern is trying to do. In an 

effort to keep its promise of the 
personal touch, the university's 
administration has carefully 
monitored classroom size. This in 
turn results in many class closings 
and frustration for the upperclassmen 
trying to add a needed course for 

The National Council of Teachers 
of English state the ideal class size 
for English composition classes as 
having 23 students. Burroughs is 
happy with 25 in each class, but due 
to the recent overflow of new 
students, she was forced to raise that 
level to 30. 

B usiness adm inistration head Dr. 
Barry Smiley is faced with an 
identical dilemma as the English 
department — lack of qualified 
faculty and classroom space. He feels 
the remedy for the business 
department is in hiring four more 
full-time instructors and gaining 
access to larger classrooms. 

Burroughs also sees a definite 
need to hire more faculty in the 
English department. Classroom 
space could be better utilized by 
holding more classes in the afternoon 
she said, but these class times are 
generally unpopular with the 


History professor Dr. John Price 
remains quite optimistic. Despite 
standing room only in all of his 
classes, Price is glad to see all of the 
new students. 

"I think it reflects the job we are 
doing here at Northwestern," Price 
said. "Students don't have to come 
here, and we don't have the large 
population pool to draw from as does 
LSU and NLU. I think we're doing 
something right." 

Dr. Randall Webb, the 
university ' s dean of instruction , said 
preregistration will be the key for the 

It's pledges, meetings, parties for Northwestern Greeks

The Demons much-anticipated 



quarterback shuffle of Andrew 
Roach and Brad Brown met with 
misery when trying to complete a 
pass. The duo combined for 1-10 
with the lone completion coming on 
a 19-yard toss from Roach to John 
Tappin early in the fourth quarter. 

Despite their inability to find their 
receivers, Roach and Brown 
recognized gaping holes in the EIU 
defense and often exercised their 
option to run. EIU consistently 
offered the Demons generous 
running lanes, and, led by Roach, 
Brown and fullback Guy Hedrick, 
the Demons netted 347 yards 
rushing. Hedrick led with 72 yards 
on 10 carries, and Roach and Brown 
teamed for 152 yards on 24 totes. 

"I was pleased with the play of 
our quarterbacks," said Goodwin. 
"We didn't throw the ball well, but 
we still should have won the game 
without throwing the ball." 

A few of the Demons' 
incompletions looked to be the 
product of mis-communication, but 
Roach said that EIU's defense, not 
misreads, caused the passing 

EIU wasted no time in wielding 
their offensive might. Onthegame's 
initial drive, the Panthers marched 
83 yards in 10 plays with quarterback 
Hickman, who had beaten Demon 
cornerback Adrian Hardy, for an 18- 
yard score. Two completions of 27 
and 23 yards highlighted the drive. 

The Demons looked on their way 
to a score on their first drive, but the 
EIU defense clamped down on Brian 
Driskill and the Demons, stopping 
Driskill for no gain on a fourth-and- 
one from the EIU six-yard line. 

The Demons finally recorded their 
first points of the game and the season 
on a Chris Hamler field goal from 29 
yards out with 9:50 left in the second 

After the Northwestern defense 
stymied Thome and company , Lamar 
transfer Ron Davis introduced 
himself to his new Turpin Stadium 

fans by collecting an EIU punt and 
racing 72 yards for a touchdown. 
The Demon punt return team opened 
up a gorge to the right hashmarks, 
and Davis' instincts and speed did 
the rest. 

With 12 seconds left in the first 
half, EIU struck for another 
touchdown. This time, EIU's Mike 
Rummell got behind Northwestern's 
Chad McDavid and reeled in a 23 
yard scoring pass from Thome in the 
left comer of the end zone. EIU led 
at the half 14-10. 

The Demons unleashed their 
tailbacks on EIU in the third quarter, 
namely Deon Ridgell. The Demons 
scored touchdowns on their second 
and third possessions of the second 
half. Roach swept around the left 
side, cut back in and scampered into 

the end zone from 22 yards out. 

Ridgell's run to paydirt was just 
as dramatic. Finding himself going 
down in the grasp of some EIU 
defenders, Roach found an open 
Ridgell and pitched the ball to him. 

Ridgell took it in virtually untouched 
from 14 yards out. Hamler missed 
on both conversions, giving the 
Demons a 22-14 lead. 

The Demon defense appeared to 
have come through in the clutch by 
holding EIU to a fourth-and-eight 
from the Panther 47 when calamity 
struck. The Panthers, lined up in 
punt formation, gave the ball to 
Lance, who ran 53 yards for a 
touchdown past a stunned Demon 
punt return unit. 

"On that fake punt, we were in a 
possible fake coverage, and it was 
like we just relaxed knowing we 
were in that coverage," said 
Goodwin. "Nine guys were actually 
playing defense on that play. We 
just didn't execute." 

The Demons broke up a Thome 
pass on the try for two points to keep 
the margin at 22-20 Demons. 

Three possessions later, the 
Demon offense stalled and was 
forced to punt. The block occurred, 
and EIU added D'Alesio's 29-yard 
field goal. 

Tennis Classic raises 
$1,200 for Lady Demons 


Staff Writer 

The first Foy Motors/Lady 
Demon Tennis Classic "exceeded 
all expectations" according to Lady 
Demon tennis coach Pat Dubois. A 
total of 82 participants showed up 
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to play 
in the tournament, held to raise funds 
for the tennis team. 

"The event was a big success," 
said Coach Dubois, who was able to 
pull in $1200 for his Lady Demons. 
"I feel that we received good 
community support this weekend. 
We will try to make this a yearly 

Coach Dubois said that the newly 
raised funds would go toward travel 

expenses and new equipment for the 
team. "We will be going to a 
tournament in Pensacola, Florida in 
November and will try to add a couple 
more to the schedule. This money 
will go a long way toward making 
the program more competitive." 

Athletic Association Executive 
Director Greg Burke was also excited 
about the event. "Funds raised by 
these projects are very important to 
the individual programs," he said. 
"They allow for extras within the 
programs, and these extras not only 
make us better competitors but help 
out with recruiting. They help make 
the programs marketable and 
attractive to recruits."

Volleyball team places third in tourney 

Staff Writer 

The Northwestern Lady Demons 
volleyball team started off their 1 990 
season with a third place finish and 
two players on the All-tournament 
teram at the Southeastern Invita- 
tional in Hammond this past Friday 
and Saturday. 

The Lady Demons accumulated a 
2-3 record over the weekend^tarling 
offFriday with an 11-15,6-15,13-15 
loss to Southern Mississippi. Then 
they finished the day with a 15- 
12,15-11,15-12 victory over con- 
ference rival McNeese State. Satur- 
day, the Lady Demons lost to 
Southeastern 15-12,14-16,7-15,9-15 
and beat South Alabama 15-4,15- 
11,17-15 before entaering the semi- 
final match, where they lost to USL 


"We played good defense, but 
just weren't playing together," said 
Coach Rickey McCalister. "But we 
were able to spot all of the things that 
need work, so that we can correct 
them. That's good." 

The two players elected to the 
All-tournament team were sopho- 
more Kelly Fontenot and freshman 
Dawn Jacobsen. Fontenot had 31 
kills, 8 service aces and 50 digs on 
the weekend, while Jacobsen added 
26 kills, 41 digs and 17 block assists. 

Also contributing to the effort 
were Renita Ellis with 41 kills and 
18 block assists, Claire Gilmartin 
with 35 kills and 48 digs, and Janice 
Graham with 23 kills and 34 digs. 
Sandi Sherrill also added 137 as- 

"Overall, all of the girls played 
really well," said Carlos. "They just 
played in spurts. They weren't con- 
sistent and they need more intensity. 
But this was the season opener. They 
have time." 

However, the Lady Demons are 
already beginning to repeat last 
year's big injury and sickness prob- 
lem. At Monday's practice, only 1 1 
of the 15 girls on the roster were 
present, and not all of those were 
fully healthy. But with the depth of 
15 players on the roster, the Lady 
Demons will be able to better handle 
the situation this year. 

Included on that roster are four 
new freshmen and a junior college 
transfer. Jaime Fleischer, Dawn 
Jacobsen, Michelle Guidry, and 
transfer Rustie Stevens will all add a 

lot of hitting power, while Jennifer 
Bunger will add some depth in the 
setting department. Also, returning 
from being rcdshirted last season is 
senior Anne LaHaye to add more 
depth to the hitting ranks. 

"All of our new players should 
have an immediate impact. Any one 
of them can step in and help this 
team right away ."said McCalister of 
his new team. "The talent level is so 
high, and so even, that there won't 
be a definite starting six. If someone 
is having a bad night, the depth level 
is great enough that I can find some- 
one to pick up the slack." 

The Lady Demons will travel 
Tuesday to Grambling to face 
Grambling and Alcorn State, and 
will travel Friday and Saturday to 
the Sugar Cane Classic in Thibodaux.

The 9th wave, the new athletic 
support group at Northwestern, had 
its first chance to prove itself at last 
weekend's season opener. 

"Overall, things went well," said 
the group's vice-president, Traci 
Wehrle. "We're trying to promote 
spirit for the first time and we hope 
to see more enthusiasm at the next 

Altogether the group has over 200 
members, although the turnout at 

last weekend's game was not that 
strong. A certain percentage of the 
members could not be with the 
support group because they were 
involved in athletics, pom-pom line, 
or band. 

The main objective of the 9th 
Wave is to develop a traditional 
welcome for the team as it enters the 
field. The group will have its own 
seating section, and will work 
together with the band and the P.A. 
announcer to cheer on the team. 

The inspiration behind the 9th 

Wave actually comes from an old 
seafarer's tale. Legend has it that 
one wave comes along that is greater 
than any that has preceded it. The 
9th Wave is "the culmination of sea 
and wind of which there is no greater 
force." Coach Sam Goodwin used 
this theory to motivate the Demons 
during the 1988 Southland 
Conference championship season. 

The group, which is open to 
Northwestern students, will support 
all athletics atNorthwestern, not just 

Intramural flag football gains popularity 

Staff Writer 

The Department of Leisure 
Activities will once again kick off 
the fall intramural season with flag 

From fewer than a dozen teams in 
the past, Northwestern' s flag footbal 1 
program has grown into a sport over 
40 teams strong and has proven itself 
to be a favorite pastime among 

Leagues are separated into five 
divisions: women, men, Greeks, 
men's dormitory, men's open and 
the co-recreational league, which has 

been expanded this year to further 
broaden the accessibility of flag 
football to any who wish to 

Games will be played from 3:30 
to 6:30 p.m., Monday through 
Thursday on the ROTC and 
Intramural fields. 

Teams may now register by 
completing an entry card in room 10 
of the Intramural/Recreation 
Building before the sign-up deadline 
of Tuesday, Sept. 17. 

For those who prefer officiating, 
the annual Flag Football Officials 

Clinic begins Tuesday at 7 p.m. in 
room 114 of the Intramural/ 
Recreation Building. The program 
will instruct would-be officials in 
rules, mechanics and positioning via 
lectures and videos. Although 
officiating experience is preferred, 
it is not necessary and all men and 
women who have a desire to be an 
Intramural official are encouraged 
to attend.

concerning these and any Leisure 
Activity function, visit the Intramural

Interfraternity Council disbanded for semester 

Staff Writer 

The Interfraternity Council of

Bmpus fraternity presidents in an 
iffort to reorganize the "ineffective" 

I IFC's duties, which included gov- 
|rning all fraternities as well as 


>ay set

planning Rush, will be taken over by 
the presidents of Northwestern fra- 

Brian Hanegan, president of Theta 
Chi, felt that IFC was "ineffective" 
and that "the fraternities needed a 
system that would be beneficent to 

Jimmy Neil, president of Kappa 
Sigma Fraternity felt that "IPC was 

working against the fraternities and 
not for them. IFC wasn't serving 
their purpose." As an example he 
stated that "it would take IPC weeks 
to decide something like fraternity 
seating at football games, while the 
presidents can make those decisions 
in minutes." 

The new governing board would 
consist of the fraternity presidents, 

who would preside as an advisory 
council for one semester. IPC would 
then become active the next semes- 

Buddy Hays, president of IPC, 
could not reached for comment. 

Rob Rushford, president of Tau 
Kappa Epsilon, felt "that this change 
would give IFC the boost that it 

All presidents agreed that achange 
was needed. Jon Terry, president of 
Sigma Tau Gamma added that "if 
this works it will do real good." 

Butch Poteet, president of Kappa 
Alpha Order and Greek Council feels 
"that the best way to get something 
done is to do it yourself, which is 
what we are doing." Poteet felt that 
when new officers are elected next 

semester that "they should be either 
the presidents of the fraternities or 
appointed alumni. Someone who 
knows what's going on." 

"The goals of IFC are to reorga- 
nize and let the presidents interact to 
make IFC more effective," said Carl

Author Ray Bradbury answers reporters' questions after his lecture last Thursday. 

Tall in love with knowledge 1 

Bradbury urges crowd to follow dreams 

Staff Writer 

In the best attended lecture of 
Northwestern's Distinguished Lec- 
ture Series, author Ray Bradbury 
advocated a belief in one's self and 
abilities and promoted an interest in 

Students and faculty packed the 
A.A. Fredericks' Fine Arts Audito- 
rium last Thursday to hear the world- 
famous author and futurist speak, 
while during the informal afternoon 
meeting at the Scholars' College, 
there was standing room only. 

When asked for a definition of 
science fiction, Bradbury cited the 
last line of Yeats' poem, "Sailing to 
Byzantium," which reads "Of what is 
past, or passing, or to come," and 
offered the phrase "ideas birthing 
themselves" as the definition. He said 
this definition could carry science 
fiction back to the days of the cave- 
man that drew pictures on the wall of 
a cave, whether to explain the concept 
of the hunt or natural phenomena. He 
also said that once this explanation or 

a solution is achieved, science fiction 
becomes fact. 

B radbury began with stories about 
his childhood and events in his life 
that influenced him to embark on a 
writing career. He recounted his 
memories of a carnival star named 
Mr. Electrico, whose act was to sit in 
an electric chair and "electrocute" 
himself. During one of his acts, the 
showman touched the end of 
Bradbury's nose and told him "live 
forever." Bradbury considered that 
to be "very good advice," passing it 
along to his audience, encouraging 
them to find a career or interest that 
would promote this feeling of im- 

He also advised the audience to 
fall in love with knowledge and to 
stay in love with it. He used examples 
from his own life to illustrate how 
these loves will affect every area of 
your life. As a boy, he collected comic 
strips and science fiction magazines, 
from Tarzan to Buck Rogers. Years 
later, he was asked to write intro- 
ductions for the collected works of 


in a series 

Louisiana Scholars' College 

'We basically started from zero' 

Liberal arts school 
celebrates fourth year 

Edgar Rice Burroughs, the author of 
the Tarzan stories, and for a collection 
of Buck Rogers stories. 

At the beginning of the lecture, 
Bradbury said that his purpose was 
"to turn you back to yourself." He 
encouraged students to believe in 
themselves, calling himself an "op- 
timal behaviorist." He said that if you 
do something constructi ve everyday, 
you will improve at it and earn a 
feeling of optimism. "Anything you 
decide you want to do, there is nothing 
to prevent it in our society," he said. 

Bradbury also deplored the nega- 
tivity seen in the media today. "We 
have too much news, we're inundated 
with it and so much of it is negative," 
he said, and warned that the results 
would be a belief that the world is a 
horrible place. 

He said that we need to start tak- 
ing credit for the good that humanity 
has done this century, and not just the 
bad. He cited the medical revolu- 
tion — the vaccines that have been 
developed and the advances in tech- 
nology as positive accomplishments. 

Staff Writer 

The fall semester marks the start 
of the fourth year of operation for 
Louisiana Scholars' College, a liberal 
arts college housed on the NSU 
campus that offers an advanced 
curriculum unlike any other in the 

It all began in spring of 1987 when 
Northwestern President Dr. Robert 
Alost submitted a proposal to the 
Louisiana Board of Regents for a 
liberal arts college designed for bright 
students who are serious about their 
education. A number of other 
universities had submitted similar 
proposals and the one from 
Natchitoches was chosen above them 

The president used a mixture of a 
proposal he authored and one from 
the NSU faculty. 

Alost says one major reason he 
worked so hard to make the idea of 
LSC become a reality is that so many 
of Louisiana's best students were 
leaving the state. LSC offers 
accelerated classes in philosophy, 
mathematics, literature, science, 
history, languages, social science and 
the fine and performing arts. Most of 
these are taught in Russell Hall. 

"We basically started from zero," 
Alost remembered. "But it was 

exciting to build from the ground 

Dr. Stan Chadick served as the 
first LSC director and chose to return 
to teaching math full time at NSU 
after one year. Dr. Grady Ballenger 
was named to the college's top 
administrative position in Fall 1988. 

Ballenger says his predecessor 
worked "tirelessly" to develop LSC ' s 
curriculum but chose to leave as his 
teaching skills were in great demand. 
Chadick only taught part time during 
his year as director. 

Students are attracted to Louisiana 
Scholars' College because of the 
small classes, challenging curriculum 
and the chance to take an active part 
in their own education, according to 

"We are trying to offer the 
advantages of a small liberal arts 
college at a public university price,'' 
he said. 

Ballenger says in the process ol 
creating this institution of higher 
learning, NSU has been made better. 
"We have proved that NSU is capable 
of putting on such a project and NSU 
itself has attracted brighter students," 
he reported. 

Currentiy there areapproximately 
250 LSC students and a standing 
faculty of 12 along with special 

Financial seminar set 

Leisure-time courses in beginning 
financial security planning begin this 
week sponsored by Northwestern's 
Division of Continuing Education and 
Community Services. 

Investment broker Bill Cross of 
the Natchitoches office of A.G. 
Edwards & Sons will be the instruc- 
tor for the "Financial Security Plan- 

ning" course. Classes will meet 6:30 
p.m. Tuesday and Thursday in room

Color shouldn't matter 
when judging people 

The upcoming senate race has forced many college students to examine a 
problem they would rather not think about racism. Although America has 
come far racially in 25 years, it's difficult to believe that on college campuses, 
many things have remained the same. 

Despite the idea that universities are places where freedoms are not only 
readily available but highly encouraged, many southern schools (including 
Northwestern) have ignored the dream of racial equality. It's not an 
administrative edict, nor is it listed in a course syllabus; segregation is 
apparently self-imposed at this university. 

Blacks, whites, Asians, Hispanics — all races — should break free from 
the xenophobic ideas which make it difficult for minorities to gain purchase 
in the activities at Northwestern. Just because a person is of a darker or lighter 
shade does not mean they have a lesser worth than another. 

It's absurd to limit ourselves to only one part of a whole world of cultures. 
A person's different ethnic background may seem strange at first, but it 
provides a perspective by which knowledge of other aspects of life is gained. 
An education is nothing without a diversity of ideas, many of which can be 
provided by persons of different races. 

Tension between races is evident on many campuses, including this one. 
If something isn't done about it soon, the racial powder keg could soon

good taste ever in mind, let's refer to 
these pariahs, as the less than 
enlightened. These folk, or those 
who merely act like them, are in 
serious want of guidance. The 
following is therefore, a brief outline 
of the freshmen schema, so that 
individuals wishing to present a more

their beloved are essential elements 
of any less than enlightened 
wardrobe. Additionally, Freshman

should be worn at all times, lest 
someone actually think you have other

motif. It is especially becoming on

the guy who can maintain his "cool 
quota." not to mention dignity, 
throughout his college years despite 
a restricting and telling nickname such 
as "Stinky" or "Digger." 

How they act. Ultra-benign. 
Freshmen are the most apt to ask 
questions like "Where is the 
Natchitoches Mall?" The naughty 
upperclassmen may respond "Which

NSU lowest-funded 
school in conference 


Graduate Student, Natchitoches 
I would like to submit this letter in 
response to last week's Current Sauce 
headlines and editorial dealing with 
university funding of athletic 
programming. Being a former athlete 
and a graduate student still associated 
with the athletic program at this 
university, I believe I can comment 
with some authority on this subject 

First, the students should know that 
the athletic department is making a 
concerted effort to become 
autonomous of university funds. 
Northwestern's Athletic Association, 
for the first time last August, held an 
auction that raised over $26,000. 
Athletic Association Executive 
Director Greg Burke last year instated 
a scholarship endowment program 
which is aimed at funding a majority of 
the scholarships given to athletes each 
year. Every year phone-a-thons are 
held which raise thousands of dollars 
for this university's athletic program 
— the Athletic Association raised 
nearly $200,000 last year. 

The question has been raised of 
why the percentage of athletic funding 
is higher than other universities with 
the exception of Nicholls State and 
McNeese. Let's consider the fact that 
the LSUs, Louisiana Techs and 
Northeasts, etc. more than double our 
enrollment, so more students equals 
more money; therefore, less 
percentage. Moreover, Board of 
Trustees President David McCormick 
has this to say: "The subsidies are not 
high compared to those atothercolleges 
outside the state. A survey revealed 
that our schools were operating at less 
cost than the schools we're competing 
with out of state." 

Operating at a lower level is right. 
The$1.5 mil lion figure would represent 
the budget of just one sport at larger 
schools. Northwestern football head 
coach Sam Goodwin gets inquiries 
every week on how he runs a top-notch 
program, one that, by the way, has 
been nationally-ranked every season 
and was just two games short of the 
NCAAchampionshipacoupleof years 
ago, with a ridiculously tight budget 

Coach Rickey McCalister's volleyball 
and softball teams both have to hold 
numerous fundraisers to supplement 
an allotted budget that doesn't even 
cover travel costs. Of the eight 
universities that compete in the 
Southland Conference, Northwestern 
has the lowest-fundedathletic program 
in the conference. 

So you want the athletic department 
to be self-supporting . . . well, do these 
students realize the university takes 
money from the athletic department. 
Goodwin '88 team received about 
$35,000 from the NCAA for their 
appearance in the second round of the 
playoffs. The Lady Demon basketball 
team also received over $10,000 for 
their appearance in the NCAA 
Tournament, Did this money go to the 
athletic department? No, it went into 
the university's general fund as do all 
of the revenues from athletic ticket 
sales. How many athletes have been 
airing their gripes about this ... not 

What do athletics do for the 
university? Athletics are virtually the 
"front porch" of a university. They 
promote spirit for both the school and 
Natchitoches. A good athletic program 
can draw a number of non-athletic 
students to school. Though thanks to 
Dr. Alost, it's certainly not the sole 
reason, but is it not coincidence that as 
our athletic programs have improved 
our enrollment and fan support has 
gone up as has university morale? Let's 
remember the times when we could 
have been LSU-N. 

As far as a small school like 
ourselves not "being known for its 
athletics like LSU and Texas A&M." 
Someone failed to inform the Seton 
Halls, Loyola-Marymounts, Dukes, 
Alabamas, and Ole Miss that small 
schools can't compete. The first three 
have smaller enrollments than 
Northwestern and the latter have 
enrollments comparable to Louisiana 

And yes, part of your money 
does "send jocks to college" as one 
student so lacking in eloquence put it. 
Your money does give a number of 
student athletes, a number of which 
are underprivileged, a chance to get a 
college degree. A number of us took 
advantage of the opportunity — and 
former athletes, including Dr. Alost, 
are among the strongest alumni 

supporters Northwestern has — but 
this is a whole new topic. 

S tudents can ' t imagine what a blow 
it is to our athletes to be demoralized in 
such a way. These athletes thrive on 
the support of Northwestern students 
andNatchitoches residents. In essence, 
the message being sent to them by 
CurrentSauce' sraiheTbiased coverage 
of the issue is "we don't care, you'll 
never be as good a bigger schools, and 
therefore we will no longer support 
you . . . and you will cease to exist" Is 
that what students want ... for all 
athletic programs to be cut? That's 
exactly what will happen if student 
funding is cut Not only with athletics 
cease to exist, but so will our band 
(which by the way is second only to 
LSU in size thanks to the leadership of 
Bill Brent), our pom-pon and 
cheerleading squads — not to mention 
the large, and I stress large, contribution 
athletics makes in so many direct and 
indirect ways to university revenues. 

Want to see what university like is 
like without athletics? Want to watch 
enrollmentandmoraledrop? Cutyour 
athletic programs. It works, just ask 

Athletic programs 
require certain costs 


Executive Director, 
NSU Athletic Association 

To be or not to be. 

Shakespeare said it first but the 
same phrase applies the recent 
rumblings and mumblings about our 
athletic program paying for itself. 

To be more succinct if you wantan 
athletic program, then certain costs are 
necessary. While the figure $1.6 
million seems large, it is nothing 
compared to what other schools spend 
on their athletic programs. In fact our 
athletic budget is the smallest in the 
state of Louisiana and in the Southland 

In addition, the little bit of money 
we are allotted to run a Division I 
athletic program is not spent lavishly. 
In fact, very few people realize that 
Northwestern offers 33 scholarships 
less than the maximum allowed under 
NCAA regulations. Yet, we're still 
asked to compete on the same level as 
other schools. Again, if you are going 
to have an athletic program, a certain 

amount of money must be spent 

Second, it is not possible, as one 
student suggested, to "spend less and 
contribute the same." Again, we are 
already way under scholarship limits. 
Where should we cut costs? Out staff 
is as small as any in the state and 
conference, not to mention the fact that 
we definitely are not overpaid in 
comparison to others. Should we cut 
travel and meal costs? Wedon't make 
unnecessary overnight trips, stay at 
moderately-priced hotels, and won't 
be found at five-star restaurants. 
Recruiting costs, perhaps? Again, our 
coaches beg, borrow, and steal hotel 
rooms as it is. The fact is, recruiting is 
necessary and does cost money. 

The Northwestern Athletic 
Association (not "booster club" — the 
name has been changed for over three 
years now) helps out with over 
$200,000-plus in outside funds each 
year. Those funds quite often are spent 
on essential items like uniforms, 
equipment and even copy machines 
because there is no room in the budget 
for these items. In addition, a 
scholarship endowment fund has been 
created to help make up those 33 
scholarships we can ' t give at this time. 

Finally, if a change is to be made in 
the funding of athletics, it is going to 
have to be made across the board at all 
schools like Northwestern or athletics 
will not survive at any of them. Why? 
Because none of these schools, when 
youcomerightdown to it (and I include 
every school in Louisiana exceptLSU), 
can completely pay for their athletic 

In our case, we would have to sell 
out 16,000-seatTurpin Stadium every 
game. "Sell" — heck, sit in my office 
on Fridays before a game and listen to 
the calls for free tickets that I receive. 
With that in mind, the decision again is 
"to be or not to be." If the answer is 
"not to be," you will be facing a whole 
new set of problems which I would be 
more than happy to discuss at any 

Funding problem isn't 
unique to Northwestern

Thebiasof Cwrenf Sauce coverage 
concerning student subsidies of athletic 
programs is quite disturbing. I say 

"coverage" because itcertainly wasn't 
anything which could be classified as 
"reporting" — an entire side to the 
story was left unwritten. There are five 
basic questions which any journalist 
asks: who, what, when, why and how. 
The Current Sauce reporting only 
employed the first two steps. 

In short, your coverage had a lot of 
holes. So did the reasoning of one 
student leader. 

Instead of "glittering generalities," 
here is specific data which would clear 
up someof the misconceptions created 
by the comments of Mr. Bill Johnson, 
SGA Treasurer, as reported in the rather 
one-side lead story in last week's 
Current Sauce. 

1) "I love athletics — they make the 
college experience much more 

The band, the cheerleaders, the 
pageantry, tailgating, postgame parties, 
the homecoming celebration, signs and 
displays around campus and around 
town — it all adds up to a sense of 
togetherness, of unity. When we put 
1 1 ,000 people in the stadium — or 1 00 
people in the stands at a Lady Demon 
softball game, for example — there's 
spirit and emotion and togetherness 
that cannot be duplicated by any other 
activity at a university. 

2) "But NSU will never be known 
for its athletics like LSU or Texas 
A&M. They need to realize that and 
spend less money." 

Northwestern $ 1 .6 million annual 
athletics budget is a fraction of the big 
bucks spent by major colleges like 
LSU ($ 16 million annually) and Texas 
A&M ($11 million). 

It'salso much smaller than the other 
public schools in the state (USL, $2.9 
million; Tech,$2.7 million; UNO, $ 1 .8 
million without football; Grambling, 
$2 million) and in the Southland 
Conference (Northeast, $2.1 million; 
McNeese,$1.9million;Sam Houston, 
$2.5 million; North Texas, $3.4 

3) "It does no good to spend all this 
money for Division l-AA athletics when 
they could spend less and contribute 
the same to NSU." 

Northwestern is spending less and 
getting more from its athletic program 
than any other state school. As Dr. 
Alost pointed out in the same Current 
Sauce article,ifNorthwesterncutcosts, 
it would have to drop to Division II or

Your parents may recognize it as 
Mom and Dad Day or Parents' Day, 
but at Northwestern it's now called 
Family Day — a day set aside to 
"honor and recognize" students' 

Dr. Robert Alost, president of 
Northwestern, explained that "Family 
Day is an opportunity for 
Northwestern students to share their 
university home with parents and 
family members and for students and 
their family members and 
administrators to become better 
acquainted in a casual and informal 

Family Day, or Mom and Dad 
Day as it was called in the 1950s and 
1960s, has been a growing 
Northwestern tradition for many 
years. Each year Family Day has 

continued to add new and innovative 
ideas to help make the parents' stay at 
the university more enjoyable. 

"We tried to make Mom and Dad 
Day a happy day for them," said 
Lucille Hendricks, former Dean of 
Women at Northwestern. 

Special preparations were made 
to make the parents feel welcome. In 
the early '60s, girls would decorate 
their rooms and make welcome signs. 
Fraternities and sororities would 
present parents with a tour of their 
houses. The Society of Women often 
stayed up till 3 a.m. making name 
tags and crosages for the Moms and 
Dads, Hendricks said. In 1965, the 
name tags were purple megaphones 
for the mothers, footballs for the 

"We did all sorts of cute things," 

Hendricks said. 

Prizes were given to the parents 
with the most children attending 
Northwestern and to the parents who 
traveled from the farthest distance. 

During the day parents had the 
opportunity to meet facualty 
representatives and the university 
president in the drawing room at 
Vamado Hall. The reception would 
allow parents to become acquainted 
with their children's teachers and 
enable them to ask questions about 
school work and university matters. 

The climax of Family Day was, of 
course, the football game. A section 
of the stadium would be reserved for 
all the parents and families. 'The 
Demon Band would always help the 
parents feel welcome," remembered 

During half time on Oct 25, 1957, 
the Demonettes performed in honor 
of the fathers present with the NSC 
Band furnishing background music 
such as "Home Sweet Home." 

Over the years the activities 
involved in Family Fay have 
gradually been modified and changed. 
This year, parents are in for a day of 
fun and games. Canoeing, sailing 
and golfing are just a few of the 
activities planned during the day 
which will end with a tailgate party 
and the football game against East 

Through 1950 to 1990, Family 
Day has been through many changes 
but the main theme has always been 
the same — "show the parents a good 
time and play it up," Hendricks

Samet witnesses 'remarkable 
political transformation' in Poland 





Staff Writer 

Dr. Tom Samet, an associate 
professor of English at the Louisiana 
Scholars' College, has returned to 
teach after spending the past year as 
a Fulbright lecturer in American 
Literature at the University of Poland 
in Warsaw. 

Samet was chosen by the Council 
for International Exchange of 
studies in 
for both 
faculty and 
The Polish 
program is 
one of the 
largest in the world. 

Samet taught three courses in the 
fall semester and four courses in the 
spring to fourth- and fifth-year 
students. "There is really no such 
thing as a bachelor' s degree in Poland . 
There is only a "Magister" degree, 
which is a five year master's," said 
Samet. The courses he taught were 
known as specialization courses or 
upper level requirement courses. 

"It's quite interesting to compare 
the university system in Poland to 
ours here. The university does not

really having a central campus. The 
different departments are spread 
throughout the area, some not even 
located within the same city," said 
Samet, "This was an effort by the old 
government to keep large numbers of 
scholars away from each , other. 
However, one result of this is a 
shortage of facilities." In the 
American Literature section, six 
professors shared one office., and the 
classes were just as cramped. These 
circumstances made it almost 
impossible to chat informally with 
other faculty or students. 

The Northwestern professor 
describes the attitudes of the Poles as 
"pro- American." 

"They are quite uncritical of 
American policy in their eagerness to 
enjoy material comforts and 
freedoms. They have great 
admiration for American energy and 
optimism," he said, adding that many 
Poles have personal ties with 
Americans. The second largestPolish 
population in the world is located in 

During the stay, he and his family 
realized that they were witnessing 
"one of the most remarkable political 
transformations of this century." 
Often, he said, he had to remind 
himself of the astonishing changes 
that were going on. 

"It is a very difficult time for Poles. 
The situation of the ordinary man has 

changed from one where he had 
money to spend but a lack of necessary 
goods to spend it on, to cone where 
there is much to buy but the cost is so 
high no one can afford it," said Samet. 

When the Samets returned to 
Warsaw from a mid-year holiday in 
the country, price increases went into 
effect. When his family left Warsaw 
on Jan. 20, the streets were congested 
with people in lines to buy goods. 
When they returned in February, the 
streets were empty. "The people ran 
out of money and could no longer 
afford to purchase goods." 

When asked of his favorite 
memories, Samet replied the 
memories of spending long 
afternoons in cafes with the highly 
regarded poet/translator Piotr 
Sommer. They wrestled with the 
problems of trying to translate English 
poetry. Samet feels he was making a 
real contribution in something that 
matters greatly to him. 

Although invited to remain in 
Poland a second year, Samet felt 
committed to their life here and 
returned. However, he said he would 
be "happy to speak with anyone who 
has an interest in Polish society." 

Dr. Tom Samet taught at War- 
saw University during his year- 
long lectureship in Poland. 

Before joining the Louisiana 
Scholars' College, Samet directed 
the department honors program at 
Rutgers University and also worked 
administratively with Penn State's 
University Scholars Program. He has 
a bachelor of arts from Michigan 
State University and a Ph.D. from 
Brown University.

Area universities may be in 
langer of losing ROTC programs 
lue to federal cuts in defense 
ipending. Nicholls State 
Jniversity's program is already on 
he chopping block to be axed in the 
all of 1991. 

The ROTC program is designed 
n nature to train students for 
eadership roles in both the military 
nd civilian life. Graduates of the 
(rogram become eligible to serve 
ull-time in the army as a second 
ieutenant or pursue a civilian career 
nd serve in the Army Reserves. 

Federal government is cutting 
ack on military strength and troop 
ize. The United States plans to 
hrink from its present size of 
80,000 to 500,000 by 1995. As a 
isult, the need for new officers is 
ecoming smaller and the ROTC 
rograms are hurting because of it. 

The Department of the Army and 
Cadet Command ranked the entire 
nation's ROTC programs by number 
of officers the army has 
commissioned over the last five 
years. There are 380 universities 
across the nation with ROTC. 

Those programs that did not 
commission at least 15 officers a 
year were the programs most likely 
to be cut. 

Colonel Royal Brown, ROTC 
Commander at Northwestern, said, 
"Unless the Army decides to raise 
the minimum number of 
commissioned officers, we are not 
in any danger of being cut here at 

Over the past three years, 
Northwestern has averaged 
commissioning 18 officers each year. 
Brown feels the NSU program is in 
good shape unless the government 

decides to cut programs by a much 
larger scope. 

"The strength in our program at 
NSU is not necessarily the size, but 
the quality of our cadets," Colonel 
Brown said. "Our cadets have an 
average ACT of over 20 and a G.P. A. 
of 2.9." 

The ROTC program at 
Northwestern has: been in existence 
since 1950 and blasts of producing 
five General officers and university 
president Dr. Robert Alost. The 
NSU program jilso has several 
graduates serving in Saudi Arabia 
with Operation: Desert Shield. 

Colonel Brown is not worried 
about the program at NSU at present. 
"We have tried to look ahead to 
insure we do not get caught up in the 
reduction," he said. "Northwestern 
has a good strong program, and I do 
not see it being cut in the near future."

Demons make no sense of Nicholls State, lose 19-7 .ad] 

Sports Writer 

An old maxim says luck is 
preparation meeting opportunity. 
Under that guideline the 
Northwestern State Demons weren't 
so lucky Saturday night. 

Sam Goodwin's Demons took the 
preparatory measures, but four 
turnovers and an inability to capitalize 
on attractive opportunities deflated 
Northwestern 's hopes of capturing 
its first win as the Demons fell to 
Nicholls State 19-7 in Turpin 

To look at the game story is to 
scan a list of lurid details. The 
Demons' offense advanced inside 
the Nicholls State 35-yard line four 
times without scoring. A failure to 
convert on fourth down duelled 
two of those drives, an(1 a 
missed field goal by Chris 
Hamler from 33 yards away in the 
third quarter accounted for another 
fruitless drive. 

The Demons committed what 
would prove to be four crucial 

The Colonels parlayed that into 
16 points. 

"The big difference was that they 
made the big plays, got the turnovers 

and the loose balls," said Goodwin. 
"The ball was bouncing around a lot 
and they came up with them and we 

With the passing game sputtering, 
Goodwin junked the quarterback 
rotation of Brad Brown and Andrew 
Roach, and left Brown in for the 
entire second half. The move seemed 
to pay some dividends as Brown 
brought the passing game to life on 
occasion with some intermediate- 
range completions. 

The Demon jpffense appeared 
languid for most of three quarters 
when tailback Randy Wright broke 
into the clear and glided in from 53 
yards out to give the Demons their 
first score of the game and make it 
13-7 Colonels. 

Wright found an alluring hole in 
the right side of the line, cut to the left 
and punched the accelerator. His 
scamper galvanized his teammates 
and the Turpin Stadium throng. 

"I got some good blocks from 
Ricky Jones, Trey Fulton and Eddie 
Johnson gota good block downfield," 
said Wright. "We needed a good run 
and I thought that got the momentum 
on our side." The momentum proved 
to be rather short-lived. 

The Demons held Nicholls on the

next series and regained possession, 
but Brian Driskill fumbled the ball on 
second down, and the Colonels' Perry 
Rodrigue recovered at the Demon 
15. Six plays later, runningback 
David Robinson vaulted in from a 

yard out to give; the Colonels a 19-7 

The Colonels broke into the 
scoring column first with a 34-yard 
field goal by kicker Jose Brand with 
11:44 left in the first quarter. The 

drive had been set up by a Driskill 
fumble at the Demon 26. 

Following an interception of 
Roach by Nicholls S tate safety Clifton 
Smith at the Demon 38, Nicholls 
State star quarterback Leonard 
Valentine capped a two-play dri ve by 
hitting receiver Chris Daigs in the 
left corner of the end zone for a 39 
yard touchdown pass The PAT by 
Brand put the Colonels in the lead 10- 
with 5:50 left in the first half. 

Just before halftime, Valentine hit 
Aaron Ruffin fora 32 yard completion 
down to the Demon 28. Two plays 
later. Brand tacked on a 45-yard field 
goal to make it 1 3-0 Nicholls State at 

Midway through the third quarter, 
Nicholls State fumbled a Malter 
Scobel punt and Fred Thompson of 
the Demons recovered it at the 
Colonel 32-yard line. Six plays later, 
Hamler's 33-yard field goal try 
strayed to the right. 

Trailing 19-7 with 8:02 left in the 
game, the Demons took over at their 
39 yard line. Brown hit John Tappin 
for 32 yards and later connected with 
Victor Robinson for 26 yards to the 
Colonel 4. A few unsuccessful 
attempts to puncture the end zone

Norris leads cross

Freshman Judy Norris led four 
consecutive Northwestern State 
runners across the finish line 
Saturday, pacing the Lady Demon 
cross country team to victory in the 
LeTourncau College Invitational. 

It was the second win in as many 
starts for the Northwestern women. 
The Demon men made their fall debut 
with a solid third place finish despite 
the absence of top runner Mark 
Troxler, who was taking entrance 
exams for medical school. 

The women swept places 5-8 with

Brad Brown named starting quarterbac 

Sports Editor 

Sophomore Brad Brown has won 
the starting quarterback's job at 
Northwestern State, Demon coach 
Sam Goodwin said Monday. 

Brown and junior Andrew Roach 
had alternated on every play during 
Northwestern's first game, a 23-22 

loss to Eastern Illinois, and during 

the first half of tlie second game, a 
19-7 loss Saturday to Nicholls State. 
Brown played the entire second half 
against Nicholls and passed for 132 
yards on 9 of 24 accuracy. 

Brown's first game as the starting 
quarterback will be Saturday night at 

home against East Texas State. 

"We're going to go with Brad

Scholarship auction slated 

"Scholarship Auction '91 ," a gala 
dinner and auction to generate money 
for Northwestern State's Athletic 
Scholarship Endowment, will be held 
Saturday, Aug. 24, 1991, at Prather 

Northwestern Athletic Associa- 
tion executive director Greg Burke 
announced the date this week and 
said he hopes to raise over $50,000 
for the endowment. 

More than 250 items, mosdy goods 
and services, were purchased at 
"Scholarship Auction '89" as guests 
enjoyed a prime rib dinner during the 
elegant event in Prather Coliseum. 

"We're already working hard to 
make Scholarship Auction '9 1 as fun 
as uV first one, and we're already 

underway soliciting for major items 
for bid," he said. 

Nearly 100 volunteers will work 
during the next year to prepare for the 
event, he said, which is the major 
fund-raising activity for the Scholar- 
ship Endowment Fund. 

"We raised $26,000 last time 
without a 'major' item such as a car, 
a house or a mink coat. The highest 
bid was $1,600," said Burke. "With 
what we learned from the first Auc- 
tion, and plenty of time to prepare, I 
see no reason we can't at least double 
the amount of money we raise."

Auction '91," contact Burke by

Flag football teams to begin play Monday 

Staff Writer 

The Leisure Activities program 
is in full swing this week as the 
Intramural Flag football program 
season gets under way. Initiating 
this year' s program was the Officials 
Clinic held last week. 

"Things went really smoothly , but 
we still need more officials," said 
Don Forrest, assistant trainer of the 
clinic. Although the clinic 
commenced last Thursday, the 
Leisure Activities department is still 
training and hiring Flag Football 
Officials. Anyone interested in 
becoming an Intramural official 
should pick up an officials packet in 
room 10 of the IM building. 

Flag Football team captains will 
hold a mandatory meeting this 
Wednesday in room 1 14 of the IM 
building to discuss rules and game 
conflicts. A representative from each 
team must attend and, with the 
exception of Co-Rec football, pay a 
$10 entry fee for their teams to be 
scheduled for competition. 
Attendance of the captains meeting 
will also assure teams a place in the 
preseason tournament scheduled for 
Thursday. The tournament is open 
to all Dormitory, Greek, Women and 
Open leagues. 

Teams will officially begin the 
season on Sept. 24. Games will be 
played every Monday through 
Thursday from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. on 
the ROTC and Intramural fields. Co- 
Recreational teams will play on 
Tuesday this year to prevent time 
conflicts for those who wish to be 

involved in other leagues also. The 
flag football season will culminate 
in the State Intramural Tournament 
at Louisiana State University in 
Baton Rouge on Nov. 16-19. All- 
campus Men and Women champions 
will have an opportunity to 
participate in this event.

The Lions aren't with a bare cage. 
There are three all-star candidates on 
offense: quarterback Bob Bounds, 
receiver Gary Compton and running 
back Jarrod Owens. Bounds did not 
play against the Demons last year 
because of a major knee injury. 

Bounds teams with Compton to 
give the Lions a lethal pass-catch 
combination. Bounds is 50-95-4 
passing with 730 yards and 6 
touchdown passes. Compton has 
caught 13 passes for 21 1 yards (16.2 
yds. per catch) and three touchdowns. 

"Bounds is probably the best 
passer we've seen to date," said 
Demon head coach Sam Goodwin. 
"He's having a good year, and it hurt 
them not having him last 
year... Compton is a great receiver, a 
great player." 

Defensive end Terry Bagsby 
headlines a swarming, attacking 
defensive unit. 

"Defensively, typical East Texas," 

said Goodwin. 'They swarm and 
crowd the ball and challenge you on 
every play." 

The breaking news for the Demons 
involves the starting quarterback job. 
Goodwin has decided to go with 
Brown as the primary quarterback. 

"We're going to go with Brad 
primarily," said Goodwin. "Andrew 
(Roach) is going to play every game, 
at least one series a half, perhaps 

Goodwin decided to go with 
Brown in the second half of the 
Demons* 19-7 loss to Nicholls State, 
and the Bogalusa native responded 
with 132 yards passing. 

The Lions sport some wounds, 
with injuries possibly throwing a 
monkey wrench into their plans. 
Compton is questionable with a hip 
pointer, and strong safety Jimmy 
Hooker is doubtful with a deep thigh 

The Demons have only minor 

ailments. The one Demon still 
considered questionable for 
Saturday 's game at this point is senior 
defensive end Troy Knight, who 
continues to battle a touch of hepatitis. 
Knight, who has missed both Demon 
games, is listed as questionable for 
the East Texas match. 

The Demons look to get the 
monkey off their back by recording 
their first win before hitting the road 
for arduous conflicts with North 
Texas, Arkansas State and McNeese. 
A failure to beat the Lions would 
leave the Demons staring down the 
barrel of one hurculean schedule, a 
prospect that Goodwin and his team 
don't want to think about

Just imagine going to school on an 
athletic scholarship. Pretty nice. Then 
imagine spending three-quarters of a 
season on the sideline injured, unable 
to play, unable to help the team win. 
You'vejustplaced yourself in the shoes 
of Kelly Banks. 

A junior from Stockton, California, 
Kelly travels a 
long way to 
come to school 
every semester. 
Her freshman 
year at 
she was red- 
shirted and had 
to let practice and 

satisfy her desire to play. Then, when 
she joined the team in competition last 
year.shespentmostof the year sidelined 
by one injury or another. 

This year is different Constantly 
working out over the last few months, 
Kelly is now healed and in better shape, 
and ready to play. 

"I feel so much better,"says Kelly 
after practice. "I'm in better shape, my 
knee is better, and my shoulder is 
healing. I'm faster, and playing better, 
and I'm happy about it" 

Last year, due to her injuries, Kelly 
only played in 1 5 matches, and recorded 
10 kills. Though she hasn't played 
much this year, Kelly did come off of 
the bench against Grambling and 
Louisiana Tech this week, and showed 
the coaches just what they wanted to 

"Kelly came off of the bench, and 
did just what she was supposed to do," 
said Assistant Coach Dawn Carlos. 
"She has been working hard and 
showing a lot of heart, and should start 
seeing a big increase in playing time 
real soon."

One of the most important things in 
life is a good self image. It is very 
difficult to live with yourself when 
you're dissatisfied with yourself or 
something you're doing. Especially 
when it's something that you're good 

For the last two years, Janice 
Graham has 
been dissatisfied 
with herplay for 
the Lady 
Demons. But 
this year, the 
junior from 
Carencro High 
School in 
Lafayette is 
finally happy 


Janice Graham 

with the way she is playing. 

"I wasn't happy at all last year. I 
wasn't playing well," says Janice of 
her previous career. "This year, my 
intensity has increased so much. I feel 
like I'm finally giving my full one 
hundred percent" 

There has been a very definite 
increase in the numbers that Janice has 
been putting on the score sheet Last 
year, she had 69 kills, 1 12 digs, and 27 
block assists in 25 matches as a starter. 
This season, she already has 40 kills, 
77 digs, and 13 block assists. Of that, 
about half came in the last four games. 
Her two best recentperformances were 
against Grambling with 7 kills and 19 
digs, and USL with 8 kills, 9 digs, and 
3 block assists. 

"Janice is so improved this year," 
said Assistant Coach Dawn Carlos. 
"She is hitting and blocking better, her 
defense is much better, and her overall 
contribution is greatly improved. She 
could easily develop into an important 
team leader for next year." 

"A team leader is definitely what I 
would like to be," answers Janice

Campus racism: a puzzling problem needing a solution 

Managing Editor 

The year is 1990, and the place is Northwestern State 
University. Can anyone really tell that it has been more 
than 25 years since the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was 

College campuses across the United States do not 
reflectalargeamountof integration, despite their attempts 
to be the model learning environment 

In a recent Esquire article, Pete Hamill writes of a 
recent visit to Brown University where he noticed that 
"blacks generally sat with blacks, whites with whites." 
Hamill also cited that last year the Justice Department 
reported "racial incidents on 77 campuses, from state 
universities to the most elite academies, ranging from 
jokes to full-scale brawls." 

Shelisa Theus, a Scholars' College junior, believes 
that Northwestern lacks "togetherness" as a result of the 
absence of integration. 

"Discrimination and racism are here at NSU, and the 
sad part is that most people don't realize that they are 
doing it," she said. Theus, who was recently elected 
S tudent Activities Board representative-at-large, believes 
that this discrimination is reflected by campus 

"Three blacks recently tried out for the SAB rep-at- 
large position, and I was the only one who made it One 
of the other black girls had tried out before and didn't 
make it," said Theus. "I'm the only black on the board. If 
we made up 1 percent of the school, this would be fine, but 
we don't. When we have a white person in charge of 
finding out what blacks want, it doesn' t happen. We don' t 
eat together or hang out together." 

Through the recent formation of the Black Student 



Association, Theus believes that blacks will be able "to 
gain more unity, become more involved in all aspects of 
the campus and have more of their needs met." 

According to Theus, many blacks feel discouraged 
after applying for a position and being rejected. "It is very 
intimidating to go before an all-white board, just as it 
would be for a white student to go before an all-black 
board. Then, a student tries out, and they get slapped down 
and give up." 

Oscar George, a sophomore from Shreveport,suggests 
one solution to the election problem is changing the 
election process."If we'retalking aboutactivitiesplanned 
for the whole campus, then why should a select few 
choose the campus representatives? Why not have a 
campus-wide election?" 

Sarah Robinson, president of the Student Government 

Association, acknowledges that the racism on campus is 
obvious. "The segregation that occurs in every aspect of 
campus life is tremendous. The mostawful thing about the 
situation is the fact that the majority of it is voluntary from 
all sides," said Robinson. 

"I think the only way to begin solving the problem is 
to make people aware of the differences and similarities 
of the various cultures represented on the campus," said 
Robinson. "I think SG A and other organizations need to 
be aware of the problem and admit it exists. Minority 
participation is important, as is participation from all 
students. It will take the efforts of everyone at NSU to 
change the attitudes of our campus." 

Many students agree that more participation from 
minorities in campus organization is a way to open 

Leadership Workshop promotes cultural awareness 

Managing Editor 

More than 100 student organization 
leaders attended the Northwestern 
Leadership Conference which focused 
on multicultural aspects of the college 

Co-sponsored by the Student 
Government Association and the 
Student Activities Board, the program 
was lead by Logan Hampton, director 
of minority student affairs at Texas 
Christian University. 

"I feel we were really lucky to get 
Logan. He is an alumnus and has many 
ties to Northwestern," said Carl Henry, 

director of student organizations and 
activities. Hampton received his 
masters in student personnel from 
Northwestern and recently served as a 
graduate program advisor for the 
Student Activities Board. 

"The object of the program is to 
bring people to a multicultural 
awareness. We are not trying to build 
of all groups," Hampton said at the 
beginning of the program. "The goal 
of this program is to learn to 
communicate effectively and to learn 
to interact with diverse cultures."

students away from developing 
stereotypes. Using 12 students posing 
as guests with controversial 
personalities such as a "druggie," 
"gay," and "holy roller," the remaining 
students asked questions from the 

"The programs emphasized how to 
overcome placing stereotypes on 
people," said Henry. "The Peer Leader 
Coalition also organized group- 
dynamic activities which showed that 
groups have leaders, workers and goof- 

Hampton also encouraged students 

to "think, take risks and talk." 

"The multicultural aspects on 
campus were altered by Logan 
Hampton's presentation. His views 
definitely need to be shared with the 
whole campus," said Kim Dowden, 
president of Phi Mu Fraternity. "On a 
more personal basis, the workshop 
was a motivational experience and 
greatly improved my insights on 
leadership abilities." 

Henry also covered the rules which 
govern campus organizations during 
the program. He said copies of the 
rules are available in room 214 of the 
Student Union.

option for students is to enroll in classes which discn

Dr. Susan Newton, a Louisiana Scholars' Collej 
assistant professor of sociology thought, believes that 
increase of racial tension on college campuses is a 
scale model of the national tensions. 

"In the last four to five years, there has definitely bee 
an increase in racial tension. Thisisanindicatorofalaraly JANE B '

IT was downgraded to program status. 

A three-member NATT team from 
Auburn, Mich., will visit 
Northwestern in the spring for two 
months to observe and evaluate the 
IT program for reaccreditation. 
Northwestern's IT department was 
the first program to be accredited in 
Louisiana and "now it may be the 
first to not be reaccredited," said 

According to Turner, one of the 
main problems with the program is 
the lack of secretarial support. The IT 
program was supposedly going to 
share a secretary with another 
department but has yet to see any 
secretarial help. 

Before the NAIT team arrives in 
the spring to do the evaluation, the IT 

program must have a book of 
accreditation which includes a self- 
evaluation of the department. The 
two- volume report must be typed and 
completed before the accrediting team 
arrives. Without a secretary to help 
type the report, the faculty is left to 
type it plus continuing to teach their 
class loads. 

"I don' t know who is going to type 
it," said Dr. Bill Shaw, former IT 
department head. "Not only do we 
have to have that report typed, but we 
also have over 200 majors with files 
to take care of." 

Shaw has tried to get part-time 
secretarial help but has been unable 
to do so. Shaw mentioned this 
problem to department head Dr. 

Austin Temple and vice-president of 
academic affairs Dr. Edward Graham, 
but still was not given any secretarial 
help. Dr. Robert Alost, president of 
Northwestern, was also informed but 
did not respond. 

Turner explained that another 
problem is the lack of educational 
supplies. "We have to go through Dr. 
Temple for supply requests, and we 
still have not received the supplies 
we asked for," he said. 

The IT program also does not have 
a budget, and the only means of funds 
are from an unsteady grant system. 
Turner suggested that a one-year 
budget proposal, listing the program's 
present and future needs, be presented 
with a four-year budget forecast He 
also suggested that the university

After graduating from NKU three 
years ago, Rogers spent a year at the 
Cincinnati Conservatory of Music 
before winning the "plum comic role" 
of Madame Thenardier in the touring 
production of Les Miserables, one of 
the "most exciting and successful 
Broadway shows in recent years," 
said Wann. 

In the Tony-winning adaptation 
of Victor Hugo's novel, the bawdy 
Madame Thenardier and her husband 

run an inn of dubious reputation. In 
the musical, the two Thdnardiers sing 
the rousing "Master of the House," a 
ribald description of life at the irm. 
Rogers auditioned "with at least 6,000 
people to get the part," according to 
Wann, and has been touring in the 
role for over a year in Europe as well 
as the United States. 

Wann explains Rogers' profes- 
sional standing in athletic terms. The 
competition of getting a major part in 
a Broadway musical or tour is 
equivalent to signing with an NFL 
team. Aswithfootball,"thediscipline 
and the work and the training are the 

keys" to professional success, ac- 
cording to Wann. 

Giving acting workshops is im- 
portant to Rogers because she is "a 
firm believer in [professional] artists 
being generous with young artists 
who are starting out," according to 

Rogers will help Northwestern's 
actors in more than one way. She will 
give a professional opinion of their 
work and perhaps more importantly, 
says Wann, "let these kids see that 
training and hard work can translate 
into getting a major, major break."

The IT department was not the 
only department to beaboUshed. Such 
departments as home economics, 
physical sciences and biology were 
placed in other departments to save 
funds. The university went from 20 
departments to 10 departments last 

"We have restructured many times 
in the last three or four years," 
explained Shaw. "In the last 
restructuring process, the committee 
established that it would be better to 

have us in a different department." 

But according to Turner, 
combining industrial technology w ith 
mathematics is not compatible. "Dr. 
Temple is a real nice man, but he is 
more involved with math than 
industrial technology," he said. 

Turner has submitted a proposal 
to the Student Government 
Association for furtherassistanceand 
is continuing to try and get responses 
from the administration. 

"I don't want to make anyone 
mad," Turner said. "Ijust want them 
to realize that we need a good 
accreditation. If we don't, it is really 
going to hurt everyone."

Louisiana Scholars' College 

LSC classes provide 
intellectual challenge 

Staff Writer 

Challenging, thorough, interesting 
and difficult are just some of the 
words used to describe the classes at 
Louisiana Scholars' College. 

"The classes are small and the 
students really have to read the 
assigned material in order to be able 
to discuss it in class," said Josie 
Venable, a junior from Plain Dealing. 
"I wouldn't get as much out of it if it 
weren't discussed." 

The majority of LSC classes are 
taught in a seminar-style setting with 
the students and instructor sitting 
around a table. 

Venable said the teachers try to 
get everyone to participate in the 
analysis of the works. "No one tells 
us whatapassage means. We interpret 
it ourselves," she said. 

ShreveportjuniorGeorge Howard 
transferred into Scholars' College last 
semester from Northwestern. He said 
he likes the wide variety of literature 
he is assigned to read. In one of 
Howard's favorite classes, 
Sociological Perspectives, he read 
books which had an impact on society 
such as The Autobiography of 
Malcolm X. 

The economics major also enjoys 
the seminar style of teaching used in 
many LSC classes. "It is like a 
meeting of equals with the teachers 
as part of the class. They are there to 
shape the discussion," he said. 

Howard feels a real camaraderie 
with the faculty and says he is part of 
abig happy family since the teachers 

take a personal interest in students. 

Venable says her time at Scholars' 
College is "an experience that will 
affect my life ina good-wayr while 
Howard foresees that he will look 
back and feel "very pleased" with his 

Recently this writer sat in on an 
LSC class — an "interdisciplinary 
approach to the study of gender" — 
which met in room 207 Russell Hall. 
Two instructors, Dr. Susan Newton 
and Dr. Karen Cole, and 20 students 
sat in upholstered chairs which 
formed a large circle in the center of 
the room. 

On this particular day , the teachers 
returned to the students their first set 
of papers. "You'll notice that there 
are no grades on these papers. We 
wanted to treat each one as a draft," 
Newton explained. 

Colecommented thatall the papers 
were thoughtful and remarkably 
good. She asked three students to 
read their works aloud. 

Rich Engstrom's subject was that 
women are "not allowed to stand on 
their own in the comic book world." 
Phaedra Kelly had written a rich 
picture of her relationship with her 
mother. Amanda Gaddis' essay 
concerned how sexual stereotypes 
affect elementary school children. 

As each student read their papers, 
they were given total and complete 
attention from all members of the 
class. A sense of academic respect 
and camaraderie was definitely in 
the air, feelings apparently the norm 
at Scholars' College.

Ground rules 

Readers should realize 
paper has limitations 

The Current Sauce is the student newspaper of Northwestern and we have a 
responsibility to serve the student body of the university by reporting news accurately 
and fairly. However, a certain amount of gate-keeping must be done. 

We do try to accommodate everyone by running requested articles and pictures 
from various organizations and departments. But for the most part the staff plans its 
event coverage instead of being "on call" for a group needing PR. 

As mentioned above, we are a newspaper put together by students, who do have 
otlier responsibilities aside from the paper. There are no students just waiting around 
the Current Sauce office for something to happen; therefore, we can't just "send 
someone over" to cover a story. We must meet those and it is incredibly difficult to 
find a reporter to cover something when we receive notice of the "assignment" a few 
hours beforehand. 

If an article pertaining toa certain group isn't run or written, it doesn't do any good 
to get mad at any one person. Angry calls to the advisor, editor, or staff writers are 
much less effective than a well-written letter expressing dissatisfaction. 

Reader response has been greater than ever this year. But, as do all organizations, 
we have our limitations and we ask that our readers understand that and work with 
us lor the year to come.

Following the initial run of the 
column "From the Left," the Current 
Sauce caught broadside blasts of 
criticism. Among the angry letters, 
suggestions to rename the paper were 
very popular. Typical alternatives 
from the current title included The 
Communist Sauce, The Berkeley 
Sauce, Left-wing Pinko Liberal 
Sauce, and my favorite, Meet Lenin. 
Being the "socially conscious" 
conservative that I am, I jumped for 
the opportunity to write this column 
when I was asked. My fellow writer 
will no doubt enjoy the idea of a little 
sociopolitical fencing. 

In his last column, Thomas 
Easterling condemned the American 
involvement in the Persian Gulf as an 
example of Bush's "sophomoric 
politicking." I would like to point out 
that Bush has gained complete 

From the Right

bipartisan support for his policy. Even 
the liberal demigods like Tom Foley 
and Ted Kennedy approve of the 
White House action. It would seem 
that either Easterling is wrong on his 
theorizing or that the entire 
Democratic congress is playing a 
rather large joke on him, although I 
suspect the former. 

Let us examine the current 
situation, shall we? The government 
of Iraq has invaded a nation 
considered to be an ally by the United 

States. Under thedirection of Hussein, 
Iraq continues to hold hostage 
thousands of foreign nationals. A 
sizable number of the hostages are 
Americans. Further, when its own 
reserves are combined with that of 
annexed Kuwait, Iraq controls 
approximately 25 percent of the 
world'soil supply. These are grounds 
for war. 

On paper, Hussein presents an

Lack of racial diversity 
unfair in SAB election 


Junior, Alexandria 

Junior, New Orleans 

This is in response to the recent 
SAB elections. 

We personally know from 
experience that the pen can indeed be 
a powerful weapon, because the pen 
can express a person's innermost 
feelings, whether they be joy, anger 
or frustration. In this case, the feelings 
expressed in this letter are ones that 
reflect both frustration and 

Lack of minority participation in 
this campus' organizations is a topic 
on which everyone, from students to 
faculty, is ready to discuss, but is 
anyone really willing to make the 
changes necessary to make a 

We decided to be different from 
those who just talk about solutions; 
we decided to begin solving this 
problem by applying for the open 
positions on the Student Activities 
Board, which was formed to promote 
involvement in campus activities 
among students of diverse racial, 
economic and social backgrounds. If 
we really felt that the decisions made 
to fill the open positionsontheStudent 
Activities Board were fair in covering 
all of thediversities mentioned above, 
there certainly would be no need for 
the expressions made in this letter. 

Sherylyn: Four positions for 
representatives-at-large were open 
and one position for Fine Arts 
Committee Chairman was open. Both 
Nicole and myself had previously 
worked on the Fine Arts Committee. 
I also applied for a representative- 
at-large position in the fall of 1989. 
At the time, only two blacks applied 
out of approximately 12 people. 
Neither one of us received positions. 
A year later, I decided to bea minority 
who did at least try to make an effort 
to participate in activities. Once again, 
I decided to apply for an open 
representative-at-large position, 
believing that after my time here on 
this campus, I have had ample 
opportunity to accumulate ideas about 
necessary changes and develop 
innovative ideas. I believed that if 
elected, I could have truly shown that 
any one can make a difference, man 
or woman, young or old, white or 

Nicole: As stated before, in the 
previous two years, I've been a 

member of the Fine Arts Committee 
and I applied for the representative- 
at-large position in the spring of 1990. 
A year later, my third year here at 
Northwestern, I applied for Fine Arts 
Committee Chairperson. I applied 
for this position to do something to 
promote minority participation in 
campus organizations; I did not get 
the position. 

Though we make not an 
accusation, nor do we place blame on 
anyone, we have noticed an 
interesting trend in the selection 
processof membersof several campus 
organizations. It simply gives adage 
to the old statement, "it's not what 
you know but who you know," or in 
this case, who knows you. Nothing 
can be proved yet much can be 

As students who have served on 
an SAB committee for the past two 
years, we are more than qualified and 
have been willing and able to be 
active representatives on the SAB. 
The defeatist attitude would be for 
us, as minority students, to stop trying. 
Yet, in all actuality, we must continue 
to attempt to be a part of campus 
organizations, as well as the SAB, 
that are representative of all NSU 
students and not just a select few. 

We are indeed happy that out of 
four blacks who applied for positions 
this year, our friend Shelisa Theus 
received one. We are not, however 
satisfied. We know that we make up 
more than one percent of 
Northwestern's population. Yet, she 
is our only representation on the 
Bpard. We plan to give her all the 
support she needs because she is there 
to represent the black students. 

As members of the Black Student 
Association, formerly the Black 
Caucus, we plan to bring about 
changes, first in attitude, then in 
participation. We plan to inform and 
to motivate, in order that students 
will be ready to participate so that 
they will fully feel like they make a 
difference on this campus. This letter 
was not written to advocate 
controversy or anger, but simply to 
promote awareness. We, as minority 
students, do have a voice on this 
campus. We simply need to stand 
together and use it. 

Education, riot athletics 
purpose of university 


Senior, Natchitoches 

This is a response to the letter by 
David O. Stamey in the Sept. 18 
Current Sauce in which the paper 

was accused of "disturbing bias" 
against athletics. 

May I say that Mr. Stamey 's 
distorted statistics are what is 

Point by point, may I address Mr. 
Stamey's reasons for his anxiety? 

Point 1: Mr. Stamey loves 
athletics. May I suggest tuning in 
your TV? The students at NSU 
enrolled to get an education, 
primarily. Athleticsonacommercial 
level does nothing to further that 

Points 2 and 3: Investment is 
justified by results and a look at the 
win-loss record at NSU would hardly 
justify the present outlay. Further, 
student attendance at games should 
demonstrate the democratic answer 
to the question of what they think of 
the result of the lavish expenditure. 

Point4: Villanova was mentioned 
as a school of renown in Division I- 
AA, but they also have a library of 
522,000 holdings staffed by 44 
personnel with 77 student assistants. 
That's jobs with a future, not a knee 

La. Tech was also mentioned, they 
have 306,312 volumes and 31 
personnel in their library with 85 
student assistants. Georgia Southern 
has 388,51 1 volumes with a staff of 

Northwestern has only 288,939 
with a staff of 19 and 29 student 

Put a price tag on your ball team 
and then put one on the education you 
presumably came here to get Are 
you more interested in getting the 
education you paid for or in seeing 
our out-of-shape football team getting 
waxed repeatedly year after year for 
a million-six a round? 

The solution needed by Sammie 
Cosper, Mr. Stamey and others who 
can ' t see past the end of their noses is 
a minor league expansion team 
channel on their satellite or a VCR 
subscription from Sports Illustrated. 
What NSU needs is more 
academically related student jobs, 
more books and staff in the library 
and a clear view of the reality that this 
place is supposed to be primarily 
dedicated to education , not backwater 

Campus race relations 
need improvement 


Sophomore, Baton Rouge 
This is in response to Elizabeth's 

McDavid'sarticle on campus racism. 
Being black and female I can 

understand some of the comments 
made about blacks not being well 
represented in the Student Activities 
Board, but also not well-represented 
in the Student Government 
Association. Last spring's election 
brought two blacks to represent the 
black population in the SGA. But 
that is still not enough. 

I can also understand some of the 
comments made about racial tensions 
on many campuses as well as our 
own. There are minor racial incidents 
including blacks and whites that some 
of us have witnessed or experienced 
in our lives. All students should try to 
get along with each other. With all 
the turmoil around the world, we 
should ease racial tensions at home. 
We as a people should stop trying to 
tear each other apart. Racism should 
end now rather than to be doomed to 
repeat history. 

Gripers should stop 
whining, start working 


Junior, Oak Grove 

After last Saturday's game, I have 
come to the rather obvious conclusion 
that our society is quite peculiar. 

This 'flash' hit me after listening 
to three hoursof obscenities screamed 
at the Demons and the coaching staff 
from supposed fans. These so-called 
Demon supporters never miss a game, 
think they are football wizards, and 
apparently are familiar with all of the 
Demons' family life the way they 
talk about them. 

These people are the first on the 
bandwagon when the Demons are 
winning, but let the other team score 
a touchdown and they are ready to get 
a rope. 

These people, and others like them, 
are what I call Gripers — and 
Louisiana is full of them. 

Gripers are never satisfied. The 
weather is either too hot or too cold, 
never just right They hate where 
they live, their school, even the color 
of their hair. Gripers hate the 
politicians in office, can not stand 
their peers, and they are never happy. 

Ironically, an overwhelming 
majority of Gripers have never seen 
the inside of a voting booth, nor voiced 
their opinion in a letter to the editor or 
to their congressman. 

All of this would be 
understandable if we lived under 
communist rule or some place with 
an unbearable climate, one university, 
and the government dictated ourevery 
move. But we live in America, the 
land of the free. 

If you do not like the weather — 
move. If the school you attend is not 
up to your standards, do something 
about it. If you are not satisfied with 
your football team, do not go to the 
game; or better yet, try out for the 
team. But for Heaven's sake people, 
don't just gripe! I am sick of it. 

I have a theory: If Gripers would 
puttenpercentof their barroom, lunch 
table, bleacher seat gripes into action 
instead of gnawing everyone's ear 
off of what they do not like, 
Northwestern and Louisiana would 
be a great place to be. 

Instead, folks just sit around 
griping about how things ought to be. 
They are lazy. Complaining solves 
nothing except put those around into 
a state of depression. 

I am happy where I am. If I was 
not, I would not be here. Granted 
things are not perfect all the time, but 
honestly there is not any place I would 
rather be — or I would be there. 

Gripers, if you do not like 
Louisiana, leave. If Northwestern 
does not make you happy, go 
somewhere else or do something 
worthwhile to change it But please, 
I beg you, quit griping. 

But I suppose Gripers will always 
be Gripers and those of us who are 
not, will just have to gripe about it. 

Freshman: Advocate's 
days are numbered 


Freshman, Converse 

Being the new kids on the block 
presents all freshmen classes with the 
and hopelessly lost during the 
adjustment to our new college 

We anticipate the jokes and often 
laugh along with the upperclassmen 
at our own expense. We generally 
learn to develop a sense of humor 
within the first day. This comes after 
our decision to either sink or swim in 
the sea of smartasses. 

We tolerated your article because 
obviously the Current Sauce had run 
out of things to print and asked you, 
in your infinite wisdom, to fill the 
space with a few encouraging words 
to the freshmen. We were so excited 
to find a senior on our level, we were 
compelled to write and ask — who 
made you the expert on us, Damian? 
Satan, maybe? 

We realize that being a Scholars' 
College Stud would make you an

^ISU agribusiness programs develop, provide internships 



faff Writer 

The new agribusiness programs 
>ing developed at Northwestern 
e n't just "chicken feed." 

Dr. L.I. "Dee" Smart, who joined 
orthwestem's faculty in June as the 
can of Cooperative Programs, is 
>ading the development of these 
fgree problems which he describes 
i going well beyond the normal 
loperative credits for working. The 
(ogram most advanced at this time 

the poultry industry. 

Smart describes the programs as 
jng new and innovative. 

"They're just being developed as 
b go. There are a lot of different 
(operative programs, but this is more 
Lnplete. The industry works very 
psely with the university," he said. 

According to Smart, there are two 
sic requirements for programs of 
is kind. The first is that a great 

number of jobs exist in that particular 
field or profession. Large companies 
with a lot of highly trained personnel 
are required also. Large companies, 
such as Tyson, the number one 
chicken producer in the UnitedStates, 
and Con-Agra, are involved in the 
poultry program. 

Smart says, "These companies are 
actually providing people to train 
students. This training extends from 
the executive on down the line. The 
companies are excited about the 
program because it trains students the 
way companies want them. Normally 
it would take four to five years to train 
an employee. This way they can walk 
in and be productive." 

Part of the training will take place 
at the Con- Agra plant in Natchitoches. 
This four-year program includes 
poultry sem inar classes each semester. 

"The seminars fit the program 
together. They tell students the reasons 

for taking other courses such as 
microbiology and computers," Smart 

Two paid semester credit 
internships are also required for 
students. First semester seniors 
engage in Poultry Processing, a five 
hour class. The students spend all 
afternoon, five days a week, working 
at the Con-Agra plant. They do this 
until they can actually function at 
every position. 

Smart believes that this is a tougher 
academic curriculum, but one that 
provides for a rewarding future. There 
are approximately 300 job openings 
in the poultry industry a year. The job 
openings are mainly management and 
that is what the graduates of this 
program will be qualified todo . Smart 
states that several companies have 
stated intentions of hiring all graduates 
of the program. 

Also being developed is a

be implemented sooner than the 
poultry program. This program will 
be developed in close cooperation 
with the business department, and it 

would allow students to obtain

students could be working in the field 
perhaps as early as the end of their

No joke. If the state's best 
and brightest (that's you) leave 
after graduation, Louisiana can 
kiss tomorrow good-bye. 

Times are tough enough 
without an increase in what's 
called the "brain drain." But it 
isn't just your brain we 
:> need. It's your energy, your 
' dreams, your belief in 
the future. 

On the other liand, we 
can't really expect you to 
stay if there aren't any jobs waiting for you when you graduate. 

So the state's investor-owned electric companies are working 
on a wide array of economic development programs designed to 
create new jobs for Louisiana. These programs, for the most 
part, are directed at bringing in out-of-state employers, so they 
aren't very visible inside the state. But believe us, the programs 
are out there. And they have been since before you entered 
the first grade. 

After all, we're the folks who least want to see the lights 
turned off in Louisiana! 
Louisiana. Ready, willing, and 
very capable.

Theta Chi sends state flag to Saudi Arabia 


Staff Writer 

Beginning this July, Army 
Command Sgt Maj. Jack Hardwick 
began writing letters to the governors 
of each state represented in his 
division. His intentions were to put 
up around his base the state flags and 
a picture of the governor of each 

Hardwick's unit The Rakkasan 
Raiders, 2nd/187th Infantry, 101st 
Airborne Division, is comprised of 
citizens of all 50 states, and is 
stationed at Fort Campbell, Ky. 

"My father felt that it would be 
good for the soldiers to see their own 
state flag at the fort. Even though 
they 're far away, it would make them 
feel, more at home," said John 
Hardwick, his son, a Northwestern 

When the Rakkasan Raiders were 
sent to Saudi Arabia for Operation 
Desert Shield, having those items 
became more important "Now that 
I hey are so far away, it means so 
much more to feel at home," said 

Several states sent both the flag 
and the governor's picture. However, 
the state of Louisiana sent only the 
picture of Gov. Buddy Roemer. "It 
was autographed and everything," 
said John, adding that due to the tight 
budget state flags could not be given. 

Because the state could not send a 
flag, the Eta Omicron Chapter of 
Theta Chi at Northwestern, of which 
John is a member, donated the money 
to buy the flag to be sent to Saudi 
Arabia in a show of support for the 

soldiers deployed from Louisiana. 

"I feel the soldiers would really 
appreciate knowing that we have mem 
in our thoughts. The flag that Theta 
Chi donated, I believe expresses this 
well and also looks good for all of 
Louisiana when the soldiers not only 

in this division see it but when all 
divisions see it," said John. 

Command Sgt. Maj. Hardwick 
urges eve aryone to write Americans in 
Saudi Aiabia. "It gets really really 
lonely th is far away from everyone 
you love," he said.

Trailing 24-17, the Lions took over 
at their own 25- yard line with 2:46 left 
in the game. On second and nine, Lion 
quarterback Bob Bounds hit running 
back Gary Perry for a 38-yard 
reception, but Perry fumbled, and 
Demon linebacker Randy Bullock 
recovered, killing the Lions' last bed 
to climb out of their deficit 
"I was very satisfied with the way we 
played in the first half," said Goodwin. 
"But in the second half I felt like we 
could have moved the ball if we could 
have held on to (the ball)." 

The Demons scored on their first 
drive, which was set up by a Chad 
McDavid interception. MalterScobel, 
replacing Chris Hamler on extra point 
and field goal attempts, made a chip 
shot from 20 yards out to give 
Northwestern a 3-0 lead with 9:50 left 
in the first quarter. 

The Northwestern defense stuffed 
East Texas, forcing a punt A 19-yard 
return by Ron Davis and a personal 
foul on the Lions put the ball on East 
Texas* !5. Four plays later, fullback 
Guy Hedrick broke into the end zone, 
putting Northwestern ahead 10-0. 

The Lions broke into the scoring 
column with 28 seconds left in the first 
quarter when Bounds found wide 
receiver Steve Compton for a 26-yard 
scoring toss to bring East Texas with 

The Demons responded on their next 
possession when Brad Brown 
scampered in for a 1 2-yard touchdown 
run with 10: 34 left in the second quarter. 
A 22-yard burst by tailback Randy

Early in the second quarter, 
North western 's David Howard picked 
up three yards and a first down at the 
Lion 45 off a fake punt Brown later 
raced in from 14 yards to vault the 
Demons into a 24-7 advantage with 
5:43 left in the first half. 
On their second possession of the 

third quarter, the Demons looked as if 
they were moving for another sure 
score when quarterback Andrew Roach 
coughed up the football at the East 
Texas 15. 

The Lions consummated a 12-play, 
86- yard drive off the turnover, capping 
it with a 9-yard touchdown pass from 
running back Willie Mozeke to 
Compton. The score made it 24-14 
with 1:16 left in the third quarter. 

On the drive, Bounds plucked the 
Demon defense bare, completing three 
passes for 45 yards. Bounds posted 
301 yards passing on 20-45. His 
effectiveness was tempered by four 
interceptions and four sacks received 
by the Demon defense. 

The Demons fumbled one last time 
at their own 43-yard line with 7:33 
remaining in the game. The Lion' Rod 
Lee recovered a Brad Brown fumble, 
and East Texas advanced to the Demon 
26 before settling for a Billy Watkins 
43-yard field goal with 5:36 left in the 
game to make it 24-17 Demons. 

The Demons confined most of their 
attack to the ground, tallying 309 net 
yards rushing, as opposed to 89 
passing. Brown rushed 24 time for 
117 yards and two touchdowns. 

The Northwestern defense couldn't 
put the clamps on Compton, East 
Texas' highly regarded star who caught 
six passes for 112 yards and two 
touchdowns. However,the Demons 
checked the Lions' star running back 
Jarrod Owens to an anemic 20 yards 
on nine carries.

for the first time this season when they 
travel to Denton, Texas to meet

ESAD wins preseason football 

Staff Writer 

Sixteen teams entered the flag 
football preseason tournament last 

Play was divided into four pools 
with teams of four players 
participating in each. The team with 
the highest point total in their pool 
advanced to the semifinals held 

The first semifinal game pitted 
Kappa Alpha against ESAD. In the 
first half of play, ESAD quarterback 
Charlie Vienne threw two scoring 
passes to Brent Walker and one to 
Chris Walker. KA came back in a 
brief rally to score, but Tim Horton 
caught the touchdown pass that sealed 
ESAD's victory as they went on to 
win 25-6. 

Meanwhile, two closely-matched 
teams, Whatever and Code Bleu, were 
playing their own high-scoring game. 
In flip-flop action, Code Bleu's Jay 
Johnson ran in for the game's first 
score. Afterwards, Jeff Mercer caught 
a pass from Jeff Howard to put 
Whatever on the board. The teams 
ended the game with four touchdowns 
each. However, Code Bleu was able 
to convert point-after attempts. 

Whatever won with the final score 

ESAD and Code Bleu faced off in 
what turned out to be a one-sided 
final game. Charlie Vienne performed 
the first major play as he intercepted 
the ball from Code Bleu and ran 25 
yards for the touchdown. ESAD's 
Mike Fuller also proved to be a 
primary player in the game, scoring 
twice successively. ESAD went on to 
become the preseason champion with 
a score of 18-0. 

The regular season is now 
underway. All teams need to check 
their schedules and make every effort 
to prompUy be at the correct field for 
each game. If conflicts are foreseen, 
the Intramural Office should be 
notified immediately.

Cross country team keeps pace with second place finish 


Northwes tern's unbeaten streak 
ended in women's cross country 
Saturday morning, but the Lady 
Demons served notice they'll be a 
factor in next month's Southland 
Conference championships. 

In the Louisiana Tech Invitational 
meet, Northeast Louisiana won with 
52 points, edging North western's 55 
point total. Tech was third at 73, 

Grambling fourth with 125 and USL 
was fifth with no sore. 

"NLU has an excellent team," said 
Lady Demon coach Chris Maggio, 
whose freshmen dominated team had 
won its first two meets. "I'm really 
excited because we have the ability to 
compete with them." 

In the men's competition, 
Northwestern was fourth in a seven- 
team field. Tech won with 42 points, 
ahead of NLU (55), USL (75), 

From the 
Locker Room 

Chris McGee 

Needed: Footballs 
with big handles 

Sam Goodwin may not disclose this 
as fact, but the Northwestern State 
football mentor did a little creative 
stained win over East Texas State Sat- 
urday night and came up with a very 
marketable idea. 

This brainchild of his promises to 
catch on with football coaches across 
the nation, especially those who have 
suffered through the buffoonery 
Goodwin endured Saturday night It's 
a concept with promising marketable 
possibilities, and it could be a running 
back's best friend. 

What is this wonderful, stealthy 
novelty, you ask?'snoneother 
than the all- new football with a carry 
handle. What's more, it comes fur- 
nished with velcro gloves and an adhe- 
sive strip for the handle, and Goodwin 
plans to issue kits. to his running backs, 
quarterbacks and any other soul will- 
ing_to pursue any and all measures to 
curb their fumbling ways. 

O.K., time to fess up. Goodwin had 
no such idea. No plans are brewing, 
and no blueprints exist But after his 
already troubled squad added fum- 
bling to their problems-to-solve list 
Goodwin must have thought his team 
had just resurrected Vaudeville. 

"It was unbelievable, just unbeliev- 
able," said an incredulous Goodwin. 
"I've never seen anything like it I've 
seen us fumble before at critical times, 
but never time after time like we did 
1 tonight" 

All told, the Demons coughed up die 
pigskin seven times. The East Texas 
; Lions pounced on all but one of those 
botches. Nice guys may not always 
finish last, but that kind of benevo- 
lence nearly put the Demons out of 

commission against a Division II op- 
ponent through which they should have 
easily traipsed. 
The Demons embraced the expected 
in the first half, riding on cruise-con- 
trol toa24-7halftime lead. TheTurpin 
partisans thoughtthesecond half would 
bring more of the same, but fumbles 
flattened out the crest of the Demons' 
offensive potency. 

The Demons' own maladies kept 
them off the scoreboard in the second 
half, and the Lions seized the opportu- 
nity, pulling closer and nearly stealing 
the game. Fortunately, an ironic twist 

Late in the game, East Texas State 
was a touchdown away from tying up 
the comedic contest when Lion quar- 
terback Bob Bounds nailed Gary Perry 
for a 38-yard reception into Demon 
territory. However, Perry had the ball 
jarred from his grasp, and Demon line- 
backer Rob Floyd gathered the prize at 
the Northwestern 36. 

Goodwin and company were just 
happy to avert last-minute catastrophe 
and claim their first win. But the moral 
booster the Demons were supposed to 
gain from a thorough flogging of East 
Texas didn't materialize, because the 
flogging itself didn't occur. 

Although they now have a win to call 
their own, you still get the feeling 
there are loose ends left to tie. That 
leaves the Demons in a rather precari- 
ous posi don, considering the next three 
games shift the Demons to a road 
venue. With the prospect of grappling 
with North Texas, Arkansas State and 
McNecse State away from home, it's 
clear that the clouds of doubt have to 
be chased - fast Here's hoping the 
prolonged road scene doesn't rain on 
the Demons' season.

Volleyball team 
comes together 


Staff Writer 

It was a slow yet eventful week for 
Lady Demon volleyball team. Slow 
because they only played one match. 
Eventful because that match was their 
home opener, and broke a three-match 
losing streak. 

The home opener was played 
Tuesday against Southern, and the 
Lady Demons won in three, 15-1 1,15- 
9,15-5. Leading the squad was 
freshman Jamie Fleisher with 15 kills 
and 9 digs. Missing from the match 
were Rustie Stevens, out with 
bronchitis, and Claire Gilmartin, who 
is suffering from muscle spasms in her 

"The girls played well, and it was 

good to win the home opener," said 
Coach Rickey McCalister. "We need 
to keep winning so that we can build 
momentum for the conference season, 
just two weeks away. 

"Rightnow I'm worried aboutTech 
at the end of the week. They 're not as 
good as last year, and we're better. We 
can beat them, now we just need to do 

Earlier this season, NSU was 
defeated by Louisiana Tech, three 
games to one in the Nicholls State 
Sugarcane Classic. 

This week, the Lady Demons will 
travel to Southern Tuesday, and then 
will return home for Louisiana Tech

Chad Gauthreaux Stacey Billingsley 



In the forthcoming 
election, I hope to earn the 
privilege of representing 
you as one of the freshmen 
senators in the student 
government. My goal is 
simple, I want to give the 
freshmen of Northwestern 
a strong a voice as possible 
in their studentgovemment. 
I'm not a politician and I 
don't claim to be. I am just 
a student who feels a duty to 
you, my classmates. I do 
have a good amount of high 
school leadership 
experience, so I do feel that 
I am qualified for this job. If 
I am elected I promise that I 
will never let you down. 
Thank you. 

Hello, my name is Stacey 
Billingsley and I am running 
for Freshman Senator. My 
involvement with SGA's 
committees has allowed me 
to develop pride in NSU. 
As a senator, I will represent 
you and your ideas; I have 
the ability to see your ideas 
carried out to completion. 
Working closely with other 
student leaders, I will be 
aware of issues at NSU that 
need more attention. Your 
vote for me will be greatly 
appreciated and I thank you. 

Andree Rizzo 

The reason I want be 
freshman class senator is 
because I feel that I can best 
represent the views of the 
freshman class. Through 
various high school 
leadership positions that I 
held, I know I can fulfill the 
required duties. I will help 
our voice heard in the SGA. 
I will appreciate your vote.

Morgan Collins 

Honesty, loyalty and 
integrity are three attributes 
I consider to be important if 
one is to represent his peers 
effectively. Moreover, it is 
even more important to have 
eagerness and enthusiasm 
toward the work one is 
doing. I, Morgan Collins, 
possess all of these 
characteristics, and again 
want to serve you as Junior' 
Senator. Since I have been 
involved with government 
in one form or another since 
my high school years, I 
know I can promise you the 
representation you deserve. 

Students, I'm not going 
to insult your intelligence 
by making cute little 
speeches about what is 
going on and what needs to 
be done at NSU. You know 
about the undercurrent of 
racism, you know about the 
parking problems , you and I 
know all that. The trick is to 
get something done about 
it. After being involved with 
the SGA in the past,to be 
quite honest, I know I can 
make a difference and if I 
can't , I know the people 
that can. 

Terri Crumpton 

Having attended 
Northwestern for six 
semesters, I feel I have built 
a strong foundation on 
which to assess the student' s 
needs. Participating on the 
Student Activities Board for 
two years has involved me 
in the organization of many 
social and cultural events 
provided on this campus. 
Now, I would like to channel 
my interest and experience 
into the governing aspects 
of NSU by being elected as 
junior class senator. 

Alicia Mayo 

Hello. My name is Alicia 
Mayo. I am running for 
SGA Junior Senator so that 
we can actively have a say 
in what changes occur on 
this campus. I need your 
help to be able to voice your 
opinions and thoughts that 
will effect these changes.

Volume 79, Number 9 

emon football ranked 16th in national poll 

ports Editor 

After a rough start, the 1990 
[orth western State Demon football 
is getting things together. 
For the first time this season, and 
the fourth straight season the De- 
nis are ranked in the NCAA's Di- 
iion I-AA Top 20 poll released 
fonday morning. The Demons are 
only team from the Southland 
inference to make a top showing. 

In each of the last three seasons, 
Demons have been ranked in the 
10, getting as high number four 
1987 when Northwestern opened 
th a 23-20 win at Arkansas State 
ranked No. 2) and crushed 
McNeese State 39-3. The Demons 

"II ^ ere ran ' cc ^ as m S n 38 seventh m id-

! Studen' 
on Lobb 

Last season the Demons opened 
the year with a number eight ranking, 
dropped out after two losses, but then 
won four straight and moved back 
into the number ten position. The 
Demons fell out of the poll from the 
number 12 position after last Oct. 
28's 26-3 upset loss at Sam Houston. 

This year, the Demons opened the 
season by dropping a nail-biter to 
Eastern Illinois, 23-22. The Demons 
operated from a two quarterback 
system and looked sluggish in spots 
but for a young team the Demons had 
a chance to come away with the vic- 
tory. A lot of the blame came down 
on the special teams play in the first 
gam , as the Demons missed two extra 
points and had a punt blocked late in 
game to add to the downfall. 

The next week the Demons fell to 
Nicholls State, 19-7. The Demons 
stayed with the two quarterback attack 
plan through the first half of the game 

and then turned the duties to sopho- 
more Brad Brown. The Demons tried 
to play catchup in the second before 
dropping the second straight loss. 

The Demons returned to Turpin 
Stadium for their third straight home 
game against a pumped up East Texas 
Slate squad. The Demons had a strong 
first half and held on to capture their 
first victory of the season, 24-17. 

Coach Sam Goodwin and his 
young team was still being blamed 
for a lot of mistakes and even in their 
first victory the Demons coughed up 
six fumbles. 

Then came a great week of prac- 
tice. Brad Brown stalled coming into 
his own leading the Demon offensive 
attack with leadership and poise. 

Game time appeared this past 
Saturday night as Northwestern 
traveled to Denton, Texas and 
matched up against a powerful North 
Texas team. 

North Texas was licking its paws 
from a trouncing by Texas A&M. 
The Demons put four strong quarters 
together and walked away with a 28- 
18 victory. 

The Demons also have made other 
marks in the NCAA stat sheets this 
season. Currently Northwestern ranks 
seventh in the country in rushing of- 
fense (274.3 yards per game), seventh 
in the country in punt returns (13.1 
average), 1 5th in rushing defense and 
19th in the country in total defense. 

The national ranking has got to be 
uplifting to the Demons that have 
taken a lot of verbal abuse after the 
early tumble. The Demons are young. 
Seven seniors are starters, ten juniors 
are starters, three sophomores and 
two freshmen. A good many backup 
players are also in their first season. 

The Demons look to have promis- 
ing days ahead and look to start 
reaping the benefits now with all the 
younger players.

The Good Woman of Setzuan, the 
Northwestern Theater Department's 
first fall performance, opens tonight 
for a week-long run. Performances 
are every night at 8 p.m. in the A. A. 
Fredericks Fine Arts Auditorium. 

"It is almost like a morality play in 
some respect," said Joel Ebarb, the 
costume designer for the play. 

Ebarb, a Shreveport native and a 
recent Northwestern graduate, is 
responsible for all hair and make-up 
work, supervision of costume 
construction, and the designing of all 
costumes in The Good Woman of 

Ebarb said the play's costumes 
are designed to fit the atmosphere of 
Bertolt Brecht's story, which occurs 
after some great disaster has happened 
and the people of the community of 
Setzuan are desperately trying to 
rebuild their society using only the 
raw materials left over from the 
catastrophe. In the procession of the 
play, the title character (Lola Davis) 
must assume the identity of a man in 
order to become successful in this 
new, alien lifestyle. 

As an undergraduate, Ebarb has 
also costumed several university 
shows such as Carnival, Our Town, 

and Steel Magnolias. He also was the 
head of wardrobe at the Texas 
Shakespeare Festival in Kilgore.Tex., 
for the past two summers. 

"Being costume designer is a lot 
of hard work, but it also is a lot of fun. 
I would never be able to do it without 
the help of April Brown, the costume 
shop foreman," said Ebarb, adding, 
"The Good Woman ofSetzuan will be 
like nothing you've ever seen on the 
Northwestern stage." 

For the production, technical 
director Vernon Carroll also served 
as the set designer and the lighting 
director. Using simple items such as 
scaffolding and crates, the concept is 
to create an "Oriental impression with 
a western mood," he said. Carroll 
wants the idea of people who work as 
getting paid and those who do not 
work as trying to "leech from the 

"This is a show that I've wanted to 
do for quite some time. It's been very 
interesting, and I've enjoyed using 
the multi-level set here," said Carroll. 
"I also like decorating with junk." 

Tickets for The Good Woman of 
Setzuan are available in the A. A. 
Fredericks Fine Arts Building and 
are free to students. For more

The shooting arose from a fight 
between Kappa Alpha and Kappa 
Sigma outside of the Cotton Patch 

On March 14 when Moody was 

arrested, he admitted to shooting 
Weyand, but said Weyand was 
threatening the assembled crowd with 
a shotgun. 

Jon Weyand, the victim's father, 
said after the verdict, "Nothing can 
bring back Jon. I do feel justice pre- 
vailed in this case to the extent that 

Louisiana law would allow." 

Moody's defense attorney, 
Charles Whitehead, said that the de- 
cision will be appealed. The maxi- 
mum sentence for second-degree 
murder in Louisiana is life in prison 
with no chance for parole. Sentenc- 
ing has been set for Oct. 19. 


"This is one of the activities SGA 
has planned to promote student 
involvement," said Dowden. 

Students may pick up free ribbons 
in the SGA office in room 222 of the 
Student Union.

Louisiana Scholars' College 

Problems exist at LSC 

Staff Writer 

Louisiana Scholars' College is a 
unique institution which is said to be 
like no other in the United States. 
However, the liberal arts college is 
not without its problems. 

Both past and present students of 
Scholars' College cite problems with 
the curriculum, class transfer to NSU 
and declining enrollment 

John Maloy, who left LSC after 
only one semester, said the material 
in many of his classes was not covered 
in depth. 

"The professors try to cover too 
much material and the class becomes 
superficial,'' Maloy said. "The idea 
of Scholars' College is a sound one 
but it has some organizational prob- 

He said he and two professors 
who left LSC believe that some of the 
difficulties arise because the curricu- 
lum was designed from the freshman 
levelup. The usual practice exam ines 
the senior level and deciding what 
type of output is desired and working 
down to the freshman level. 

Maloy, currently a junior at 
Northwestern, says he realizes the 
program is new and he feels some of 
the teachers are inexperienced. 

"Scholars' College professors 
dazzle students with phrases, but 
when you cut through all the words 
there is no substance," he said. 

Maloy emphasized these were the 
conditions when he was in LSC in 
Fall 1988, and he does not claim to 
know the present situation. He pre- 

viewing on campus during the month 
of October should stop by the Office 
of Career Planning and Placement to 
register early. 

Companies recruiting are KMart, 
JC Penney Co., State Farm Insur- 
ance, Peat Marwick, Nestl6, Monroe 
City Schools and Conoco. 

Interested students must have a 
completed placement file that in- 
cludes placement registration forms, 
resumes and letters of recommenda- 

For more information on inter- 
view dates and other available posi- 
tions, contact the Office of Career 
Planning and Placement, room 305 
of the Student Union, 357-5621. The 
Counseling and Career Center is now 
open until 8 p.m. on Tuesday eve- 

diets LSC will close soon if changes 
are not made. 

Several past LSC students report 
an uncertainty of how their classes 
would transfer to Northwestern. 
"Martha," who asked that her real 
name not be printed, said it took 
weeks before she found out how her 
earned credits would be accepted at 

Scholars' College Director Dr. 
Grady Ballenger says any young 
program will experience problems. 

"The national retention rate in 
honors programs is less than 50%," 
he noted. "Some people decide they 
don't have the strong commitment it 
takes to remain in the program." 

Ballenger said he is not aware of 
students having difficulties with 
getting classes transferred. 

A current LSC student who also 
wished to remain anonymous says 
professors try to force their beliefs 
upon students. "Irene" expressed 
students are scorned if they speak 
against a liberal point of view. 

"In order to succeed, you have to 
present a liberal standpoint on most 
every issue," she said. 'There are 
bad feelings among the LSC faculty 
and more conservative students." 

"Irene" feels instructors frown on 
those who participate in extracur- 
ricular activities and said some who

West African griot 
to perform here 

Papa Bunko Susso, a West Afri- 
can musican and oral historian, will 
be featured in a lecture and perfor- 
mance Oct 23 at Northwestern. 

The lecture is sponsored by the 
Louisiana Scholars' College through 
a grant from the Louisiana Endow- 
ment for the Humanities. 

According to program director Dr. 
Janet Sturman, assistant professor of 
humanities at LSC, Susso is a West 
African griot, a "living repository of 
ancient legends, geneological history 
and social customs." 

His program at Northwestern will 
begin at 7 p.m. in the Recital Hall of 
the A. A. Fredericks Creative and 
Performing Arts Center.

Senate race 

Duke must be stopped 

Amid the confusion and excitement surrounding the elections of Mr. and 
Miss NSU as well as the 1 990 Homecoming Court, a more important election 
has been virtually forgotten. This weekend's election covers everything from 
state constitutional amendments to the race for the U.S. Senate. 

As most people know, it's J. Bennett Johnston versus David Duke for the 
senate seat (yes, Ben Bagert is also in the running, but it's a slim chance that 
he'll get a majority of the votes). Duke cannot be allowed to win this election; 
if he does, he'll cement the belief that Louisiana is the most backward state 
in the nation. 

There are several obvious reasons for not electing the man: he's been a 
member of the Ku Klux Klan, he still advocates white supremacy, he is an 
anti-Semite and his "reform" policies are nothing but segreationist propa- 
ganda. The man is truly a danger to our state. 

Duke claims to have changed his ways and says he is now a conservative 
Republican. But with his affiliation with the National Association for the 
Advancement of White People still going strong, it is impossible to believe 
anything he says. His fundamental beliefs of racism still exist and, if elected, 
he will no doubt put those beliefs into action. The voters of Louisiana cannot 
allow this to happen. 

A glance at almost any news magazine will show what the rest of the world 
thinks of Louisiana. Our reputation is that of an ignorant region still clinging 
to die bygone ways of the Old South. If Duke were to win the senate race, he 
would bring the ultimate shame to our state. 

All it takes to stop Duke is a resounding negative vote from the people. 
Everyone, including students, has a say in national and state affairs with their 
vote. A simple action by the people of Louisiana could save the future. 

Go and vote this Saturday, Oct. 6. Vote against David Duke. 

Dismal story could happen in La. 

Ray Bradbury's recent visit to our 
campus inspired me to think about 
Louisiana's future — a timely thing to 
do, considering that on Oct. 6 Louisi- 
ana voters will be sending a senator 
and representatives to Washington, 
D.C., and within the next 18 months, 
statewide elections will be held again. 

What kind of state will Louisiana 
be? Will there be recycling programs 
and lough environmental standards 
for industries that have thus far raped 
the "Sportsmen's Paradise?" Well, 
I'm not holding my breath. What 
about education — will the leaders we 
elect improve both the quality of 
education and the rate of pay for our 
educators? I can only hope. Unfortu- 
nately, one thing is almost certain: 
that unless good choices are made in 
the selection of our representatives, 
women will lose their reproductive 
freedom and dire consequences will 

But, to avoid unsavory academic 
dilutions such as "reproductive free- 
dom" — God forbid anyone having to 
think — let me offer you an example 
of what will happen if a certain set of 
circumstances comes to pass. Let's 
call it "Jenny's Story." 

Jenny is a 20-year-old white 

From the Left 

k I 

Thomas Easterling 

woman with a high school education. 
She works as a secretary and makes 
$11,000 a year. She is not rich, not 
even middle class, but she is self- 
sufficient and proud of it. She has just 
enough money to pay rent and go to 
the movies now and then. 

Jenny has a boyfriend. They are 
happy together. So happy, in fact, 
that he tells her he loves her and then 
they sleep together. Jenny gets preg- 
nant. Boyfriend moves to another 

Jenny does not want to have the 
man's child. But this is Louisiana, 
and it is 1993 — abortions have been 
illegal for two years now. Jenny can ' t 
afford to leave the South and have a 
legal abortion; nor does she want to 
risk an illegal abortion. She resigns 
herself to having the child — she will 
put it up for adoption. 

Eight months later she is fired 
because she is falling behind at work. 
It's hard to work when you're in the 
third trimester. A few weeks later, 
her child is bom, but nobody wants to 
adopt it. She will be forced to take 
care of the child herself. 

Jenny paid taxes when she worked. 
She figures the state will help her 
care for her child. But when she goes 
to the Aid to Families with Depen- 
dent Children office, the worker asks 
her, "Where's your wedding ring?" 
Again, it is 1993: aid to mothers with 
"illegitimate" children was suspended 
one year ago. 

So, Jenny tries the private sector 
again. But nobody wants to hire a 
woman who had a child two weeks 
ago — you know, she's unreliable be- 
cause her child will get sick and she' 11 
miss work. 



Jenny cannot feed her child, much | 
less clothe and shelter it She aban- 
dons it on a doorstep in an affluent! 
neighborhood. She gets caught, isl 
tried and is sent to jail for a couple of| 

Pretty dismal story, isn't it? But id 
is not at all unrealistic. First, thel 
Louisiana legislature is entirely likely ' 
during the next legislative session to 
make abortions illegal. *arah R °bi 

Worse still, David Duke mighl 
win incumbent Sen. J. Bennet 
Johnston's seat One of Duke's sell 
ing points is welfare reform, and oru 
plank in his reform plan is to make 
the mothers of illegitimate childrei 
ineligible for welfare. Notably, al ' 
though Lee Atwater and other Re 
publican cheif s have decried Duke a 
a charlatan, Duke's proposal is no 
too far off the mark from the officii 
GOP platform. 

The only good thing about Jenny' 
story is that it does not have to con 
true. On Oct 6, and later on durii 
elections for state seats, voters ci 
make it a nightmare instead of res 
ity. But I'm not holding my breatl

SAB election did not 
discriminate blacks 


SAB Hospitality Chairwoman 
Junior, New Orleans 

This letter is in response to the 
insinuations made against the SAB 
by Shelisa Theus, Nicole Robertson 
and Sherylyn Guillot, 

First of all, I want to address your 
references to there being only one 
black SAB member, yet blacks 
compromise more than 1 percent of 
our campus. This is true, but are you 
suggesting that the S AB has 99 white 
members on the board to one black 
member? Please get your math 

True, there were five positions 
open, and more of these were filled 
by white people than black people. 
But, have you considered the fact that 
many more white students applied 
for these positions than did black 
students? Wouldn 'tit stand to reason 
that because of this, the odds of more 
whites being elected were quite 
strong? Perhaps if more black students 
had applied than white, the ratio would 
have been different. Maybe you 
should have stopped to consider this. 

You complain about the three 
black students that weren't elected, 
but what about the six white students 
who also ran but didn ' t get a position? 
I understand that you feel bad about 
not getting elected as represen tatives- 
at-large or fine arts chairmen, but I 
don't understand why you want to 
turn this into something racial when 
it's not You make it sound as though 
we should have elected all of the 
black candidates simply because they 
were black. Is this the kind of equality 
you want? I am sure anyone would be 
able to tell you that there is nothing 
"equal" about that 

We had to choose only five out of 
14 candidates- all of whom would 
have made excellent board members. 
Believe me, everyone was equally 
considered, and being black, white, 
purple or green did not help or hurt 
anyone. The selection was based on 
the candidate's answers to questions, 
not because of "who you know," or 
what color your skin is. 

I don't know how you can accuse 
us of not having minority 
representation when our last 

president, Darryl Willis, was black. 
Three weeks ago we nominated 
Darryl for Mr. NSU. Would you 
consider this a prejudiced, racial act? 
Perhaps we are more open minded 
than you give us credit for. 

This past week, there was another 
opportunity to become active on 
campus through the SGA, as eight 
positions were open for class senators. 
You made the statement that a general 
election would be more fair, and yet 
in the open election not one minority 
student ran. Perhaps instead of 
pointing fingers al one organization, 
one should expand themselves to all 
opportunities that are presented. It is 
regrettable that you did not receive a 
position on the board (with the 
exception of Shelisa Theus) but 
honestly, it had nothing to do with 

I'm not denying that racism exists 
on this campus, because it certainly 
does. But you cannot continue to 
blame all of your problems on it. 

Activities Board serves 
all NSU students 


SAB Parliamentarian 
Senior, Leesville 

This is a response to the letter by 
Sherylyn Gullot and Nicole Z. 
Robertson in the Sept. 25 Current 

We, the undersigned, do hereby 
state that we do not discriminate on 
the basis of race, color, national ori- 
gin, handicap or age in admission, 
access to, treatment or involvement 
in our program and activities. 

As stated in the constitution of the 
Student Activities Board: "The union 
will serve as a unifying force in the 
life of the university, cultivating en- 
during regard for and loyalty to the 

There is definitely a unifying force 
present within the Student Activities 
Board and the board shows great re- 
gard and loyalty to everyone who 
applies for a vacant position. 

The SAB is here for a purpose, and 
that purpose is to serve the students, 
all the students. We do not believe in 
representing only a portion of the 
student body; we support all back- 
grounds regardless of the color or 

In response to the position of Fine 
Arts chairman, the board gave great 
consideration to this position since it 
is a very demanding, and like all 
positions on the SAB, it is very im- 
portant as well as time consuming. 
The elected chairperson had all the 
qualifications the Board believed to 
be necessary to fill the position of 
Fine Arts. 

The elections of the represen tives- 
at-large were conducted the same 
way. The positions were filled by 
students the board perceived to be the 
most competent and could help to be 
provided added support to all the 
studentactivities initiated by the SAB . 

The SAB is very effective and is 
becoming more and more efficient; 
we welcome all suggestions and ideas 
from all the students. Much more 
could be accomplished by the SAB if 
the student body would just simply 
work together as one and not as sepa- 
rate entities. 

KNWD offers students 
'greater choice' this year 


Senior, Baton Rouge 

Having worked at KNWD for the 
past three years, I have seen our radio 
station under the management of four 
General Managers, including the 
current Carter Ross. Each GM for 
whom I have worked has run KNWD 
effectively and certainly contributed 
a great deal to my education of the 
radio-business and of music itself. 

While I respect all of the former 
GMs, the format of music to which 
KNWD was geared was very limiting 
in terms of musical preferences for 
certain student audiences. Granted, 
leniency always made its way into 
the system and disc jockeys were 
given some say in programming their 
shows but never so much as is 
apparent as in the format now 
operating at KNWD. 

I believe Mr. Coker's letter in the 
Sept. 25 issue of the Current Sauce 
reflects an uninformed, short-sighted, 
and apparent non-listening opinion. 
This year KNWD has virtually three 
different formats: (1) College- 
Oriented from Monday through 
Wednesday, (2) Rock or Album- 
Oriented all day Thursday and Friday 

and (3) Urban Contemporary all 
weekend, not to mention specialty 
shows featuring reggae, Christian, 
jazz, and other formats. If you are 
searching for haunting melodies from 
Debbie Gibson, Paula Abdul, Wilson 
Phillips or Nelson, you are not going 
to hear them on KNWD. There are 
several area stations which should 
more than satisfy your need for that 
type of music. 

KNWD, under the management 
of Carter Ross, is offering students a 
greater choice this year than in all of 
the years I have been atNorthwestern. 

What is it you would like to hear, 
Mr. Coker? Call the station and make 
arequesL Unlike previous years, DJs 
are now encouraged to play the 
requests called in by students. Doing 
so is part of the privilege I now have 
thanks to the management. In no way 
is Carter Ross undermining KNWD 
to turn it away from being a radio 
station for the students at NSU. 

To clear up your claim concerning 
Carter Ross' "undermining station 
policy by placing less experienced 
DJs in prime-time slots while leaving 
more experienced disc jockeys in the 
overnight slot," Mr. Ross, along with 
the other KNWD management 
personnel, have made every effort to 
give the experienced DJs priority and 
preference in selecting their time slots. 
This doling-out of air-time is 
conducted at the first meeting of every 

Granted, the management is not 
working to accommodate the needs 
of individual DJs but of the student 
body. I believe in your situation, 
your "demand" for a certain time slot 
was thwarted because a DJ with two- 
years more experience than you was 
vying for the same slot. 

Radio station plays 
music for the masses 


KNWD General Manager 
Senior, Hammond 

It seems that Edward Coker has 
two complaints with KNWD: 1) that 
its music is not diversified enough 
and 2) that he didn't get a show this 

His first claim is laughable — 91.7 
now plays a wider variety of music 
than ever before. In the past, KNWD 
has been limited to an Album Oriented 

Rock (AOR) format which appeals 
only to an increasingly smaller 

KNWD now splits its 
programming among AOR/Loud 
Rock, Alternative Rock, and Hip-Hop 
and Dance — thus we now serve 
more listeners than ever. As one 
student has phrased it: "KNWD is 
like all of your favorite tapes mixed 
into one." 

To Mr. Coker's second claim, 
"station policy" has not been ignored. 
We had over 70 people apply for less 
than 50 shows. It was impossible for 
everyone to have a shift 

Atour first meeting of the semester, 
every DJ picked the time she or he 
wantedforashow. They were limited 
only by the format and the number of 
hours in a day. When two (or more) 
DJs picked the same slot, preference 
went to the DJ with the most 
experience. This was so in Mr. 
Coker's case. 

Whenever this happened,returning 
jocks were offered other slots from 
overnight to primetime, but because 
of inflexible schedules, some 
returning jocks were not given slots. 
This is KNWD's station policy. 

I'm not sure why Mr. Coker 
considers me a tyrant. I've always 
opposed fascism in all of its forms. 
What I want for KNWD is for it to be 
thebeststationNSUcanhave. Within 
the industry our reputation has 
improved tremendously over the past 
year.; I hope to also raise KNWD in 
the eyes of Northwestern 's students 
and of our listeners in Natchitoches. 

We cannot please everyone all of 
the time — but even Mr. Coker admits 
that he enjoys some of KNWD's 
programming. I challenge him and 
all other nay-sayers to lay aside their 
assumptions. KNWD is playing 
music for the masses — and the 
masses are diverse. Listen and enjoy. 

If you do have complaints, then 
make me aware. KNWD's address is 
NSU Box 3038, Natchitoches, LA 
7 1497, and our phone number is 357- 
KNWD (5693). Peace and Unity.

Chopin, a noted author who lived 
in Bayou Folk in Cloutierville in 
Natchitoches Parish from 1880 to 
1 883, became one of America's most 
important writers. She was well 
known for her short stories which 
aescribed life in the Cane River re- 
gion of Natchitoches Parish during 
and after Antebellum times. 

First published in the late 19lh 

century, Chopin's works, which in- 
cluded "A Night in Acadie" and 'The 
Awakening," vividly portrayed the 
distinctive creole and Cajun atmo- 
sphere, language and customs of the 
Cane River Region. 

The Kate Chopin series that 
Northwestern will be presenting in 
the 12 parish libraries was designed 
by Dr. Karen Cole, associate profes- 
sor of English in the Louisiana

Students discuss campus involvement at Campus Forum 

Staff Writer 

Student involvement in campus 
activities was the topic of last week ' s 
Campus Forum, an opportunity for 
students to discuss timely issues. 

Formed by Oscar George, senator- 
at-large for the Student Government 
Association, the forum allows 
"students to openly express their 
opinion on what is happening on 
campus, locally, state-wide, and 
nationally," said George. The Campus 
Forum is modeled loosely on Free 

Speech Alley at Louisiana State 

A panel of four student leaders 
and audience members discussed 
methods of student involvement via 
campus clubs, as well as both the 
SGA and the Student Activities 
Board. Members of the panel included 
SAB president Lisa Lukowski, 
Current Sauce editor H. Scott Jolley, 
SGA president Sarah Robinson and 
KNWD station manager Carter Ross. 

Panel members said that there has 
been a rise in the number of students 

participating in campus activities, but 
would like to see more commuters 
and non-Greeks become involved. 

"More students are voting in SGA 
elections, although that is still a small 
percentage of the total student 
enrollment," said Robinson. 

There has also been "a growth in 
the number of people interested in 
becoming involved with KNWD as 
70 students applied for49 shifts at the 
station," Ross said. 

Ideas for increasing participation 
included advertising to make students

how it developed to what it is now," 
said Maxine Sutherland, president of 
Association for the Preservation of

the Melrose Plantation, which dates 
back to around 1796, and also the 
Bayou Folk Museum, built in the 
early 1800s and restored as the home 
of Kate Chopin , a famous author from 

The Candlelight Tour will be a 
walking tour through the Historic 
Landmark District to four historic 

settings. Featured will be the Tante 
Huppe House, built between 1827 
and 1835; the Prudhomme-Roquier

Tappin's range sparks Demon offensive attack on UNT 

NSU defeats North Texas 28-18 



Sports Writer 

There's something about North 
Texas green and white that summons 
the beast in the Northwestern State 

For the third straight year, the 
Demons entered their game with the 
North Texas Eagles as consensus 
underdogs to a highly-regarded Eagle 
unit. And for the third straight year, 
the Demons emerged occupying the 
winner's circle while North Texas 
emerged confounded. 

The Demons employed a stout 
defense and exerted its big-strike 
capability to ground the Eagles 28-18 
at North Texas' Fouts Field Saturday 

The Demons unveiled a new 
offensive weapon in receiver John 
Tappin. The junior flanker utilized 
his celerity to haul in touchdown 
receptions of 76 and 66 yards from 
quarterback Brad Brown. Tappin 
also found the end zone on an 18- 
yard reverse with 11:39 left in the 
second quarter. 

Tappin's three touchdowns and a 
15-yard scoring run by Brown 
supplied the Demons with a 
commanding 28-3 lead with 5:43 left 
in the third quarter. The Eagles looked 
dead, but they staged an admirable 

After Tappin's third and final 
touchdown, the Eagles, led by All- 
American quarterback Scott Davis, 
engineered a seven-play, 69-yard 
drive that ended with a one-yard 
touchdown plunge by Eric Pegram. 
Davis added thetwo-pointconversion 
to pull the Eagles within 28- 1 1 of the 

On the first play of thenextDemon 
drive, Brown fumbled, setting the 
stage for a Davis 5-yard touchdown 
run with 1 :0 1 left in the third quarter. 

Kicker Brad Allen's PAT made it 28- 
18 Demons. 

After their paltry third quarter 
showing, the Demons played ball 
control and stiffened on defense to 
deny the Eagles from scoring again. 
Demon linebackers Randy Bullock 
and Andre Canon teamed to crunch 
Davis for no gain on fourth-and-one 
from the Eagle 42 with 3 :27 left in the 
game to help preserve the win. 

"The defensive line did a hell of a 
job," said Bullock. "We were 
prepared like we've never been 

Late in the first quarter, Brown hit 
Tappin for a completion, and the 
flanker cranked up the jets for a 76- 
yard scoring pass to give the Demons 
a 7-0 lead with 4 1 seconds left in the 
first quarter. The touchdown was 
Tappin's first as a Demon. 

"It's been a long time since I've 
been in the end zone," said Tappin. 
"We worked on that play in practice, 
in caselhey were playing me tight in 
the slot. Brad made a great pump- 
fake, and the guy bit on it After that, 
it was just a matter of me catching the 

Tappin hit paydirt again on his 18- 
yard reverse in the second quarter for 
a 14-0 Demon lead. 

The Eagles finally found their way 
into the scoring column when they 
recovered a fumbled punt return by 
Northwestern 's Ron Davis at the 
Demon 27. That set up a 44-yard 
field goal by Allen with 5:22 left in 
the first half. 

The Demons' big-play element 
struck again when Darius Adams 
returned the opening kickoff of the 
second half 55 yards to set the stage 
fora 15-yard scoringjaunt by Brown, 
which gave the Demons a 21-3 
advantage with 1 1 :30 left in the third 

The Brown-to-Tappin combo 
clicked again for the Demons on their 
next series when Brown hit Tappin 
for a 66-yard scoring toss to seemingly 
put the Demons out of sight and out 
of mind for North Texas at 28-3. 
"We dug ourselves too big a hole to 
climb out of," said North Texas head 
coach Corky Nelson. "Of course, 
(Northwestern) helped us dig it. They 
made the big plays and we didn't. 
That about sums it up." 

The Demons missed a chance to 
capitalize on a North Texas turnover 
in the first quarter. Troy Knight fell 
on a fumble at the Eagle 38, and the 
Demon offense moved to the 5 -yard 
line. But Maker Scobel's 22-yard 
field goal attempt sailed wide right 

North Texas also wasted a golden 
opportunity in the fourth quarter. A 
procedure penalty on the Eagles 
nullified a 3 1 -yard field goal by Allen, 
and he missed wide right on a second 
try from 36 yards. 

Brown was 7-8 passing for 197 
yards and also led the Demons with 
62 yards rushing. Tappin had 2 
catches for 142 yards and accounted 
for 156 total yards. He was named 
Southland Conference offensive 
player of the week for his efforts. 

The Demons held the advantage 
in a tremendous disparity in total 
yards.outgaining the Eagles 442 yards 
to 207 yards . The Demon defense put 
the clamps on Davis, holding the 
heralded passing star to just 96 yards 

The win put the Demons at 1 -0 in 
Southland Conference play, and it 
boosted the Demons into the Division 
I-AA Top 20. The Demons occupy' 
the sixteenth slot in this week's poll. 

"I was happy to come in and get a ; 
conference victory on the road," said 
Demon head coach Sam Goodwin. 
"It got a little scary at the end, but the 
defense held tough. I think we're

ISEP students find NSU 
friendly, relaxed, 'cool' 

Staff Writer 

Northwestern is hosting three 
students participating in the 
International Student Exchange 
Program. Jerome Perrault, Susan 
Edwards and Andre Farret have 
travelled from their home countries 
of France, Canada and England to 
study here. 

ISEP is a program designed to 
make study outside a student's home 
country available and affordable to 
all students regardless of the 
institution they attend or their 
financial situation. The program is 
based on a reciprocal exchange of 
benefits. Each participating student 
pays regular fees and an ISEP fee to 
his or her own institution. 

Perrault is from a small 

town in France on the banks of the 
Loire river. Saint Mathurim is 300 
km east of Paris, between Paris and 
the Atlantic Ocean. Because Saint 
Mathurim is so near to the ocean, the 
climate is often rainy and has cold 
winters. One of the biggest changes 
Perrault says he has had to accept is 
the heat and humidity of Louisiana. 

Perrault "has dreamed of visiting 
the United States since he was 16." 
Several years ago he attended the 
Olympic Games in Los Angeles. 
ISEP was recommended to him by a 
friend who felt it would be a good 
opportunity for a longer stay. When 
he applied to ISEP he found it to be a 
lot less expensive than he had 
expected. After reading the literature 
he decided to apply to a school in 
Louisiana "because it is the state most 

like France." 

Broadcast journalism isPerrault's 
major and he is taking a heavy load of 
seven journalism classes. His goal is 
to become a movie director one day 
and he hopes that by studying in the 
United States he will be able to obtain 
a different perspective on the film 
industry. Many of his favorite writers 
and movie directors are from the 
United States. Before returning to 

France, he plans to visitmovie studios 
in California. 

In France, Perrault studied law, 
but later decided to pursue a career in 
fdm. He made a short fdm for school 
in Paris and is presently working on a 
film for a journalism independent 
study in class. All Perrault would say 
about his project until he finishes is 
that the film will be a dark comedy 
that will follow the activities involved 
in one day in the life of a student at 

Television, people, and food are a 
few of the areas of difference between 
Americans and French. French 
television has only eight channels 
and shows fewer commercials. Many 
of France's commercials are produced 
by well-known French and American 
directors. "There is also a different 
type of humor, so the French do not 
usually like American television 
shows," said Perrault. 

After school activities in France 
include going to a cafe after class 
foraperitifs , or drinks, and spending 
time with friends. Usually around 8 
p.m. they have dinner at home. 
"Cooking is an art and the meals are 
more subtle than those in the U.S.," 
he said. "They take a long time to be 
prepared and wine is served with 
important meals." After dinner, the 
French usually go to the theatre, a 
movie, or nightclub. 

Perrault says he has enjoyed the 
time he has spent in Natchitoches so 
far and hopes to visit New Orleans 
and the bayous of south Louisiana. 
He finds his classes "cool" and relaxed 
and the people friendly, but wishes 
that there were some of the good, 
classical films in Natchitoches. 

Susan Edwards is from Toronto, 
Canada and has been attending school 
at the University of Prince Edward 
Island. Toronto is in the province of 
Ontario and is a region that is rocky 
with much green vegetation. Several 
sport teams including the Toronto 
Bluejays baseball team, a hockey and 
football team call Toronto home.

Spending a semester in Europe is 
a dream for many students. 
Northwestern senior Jennifer Walsh 
had the opportunity to realize that 
dream by participating in an exchange 
student in VaxjO, Sweden last spring. 

With the help of the International 
Student Exchange Program (ISEP), 
she studies at the University of VaxjO 
and took courses such as sociology, 
social psychology, intercultural 
communications, and field research 
which dealt with social change in 
Budapest, Hungary. 

Walsh said she enjoyed writing 
for her school newspaper and also 

help you get there," she said. 

While she was abroad, she was 
able to observe the customsof Sweden 
and other nations upclose. Shestayed 
with a host family, who helped her 
get adjusted to the Swedish culture. 
Because Sweden is a socialist nation, 
the government supplies jobs to 
everyone so that there is no 
unemployment; therefore, Walsh 
noticed a lack of incentive by her 
fellow Swedish schoolmates to study 
hard and step ahead of anyone else. 

Although their study habits 
differed from her own, Walsh was 
impressed on how aware her 
conservative schoolmates were of 
world affairs. "The average student 

consisted of bread and cheese | 
breakfast, an open-faced sandwL ber 9, 
for lunch, and potatoes with ox^. 
reindeer meat for dinner. If 
meals sound undesirable, one 
have a small meal at McDori 
which ranged from $6 to $7. 

Night life activities in Va 
usually took place during the we 
while studying was done 
weekends. Dating was done in groM 
and was usually set up by mut 
friends. "Everyone there was frie 
and helpful," statedWalsh,"Itisi 
to be judged for how and what ; 
think, not how you look." 

"I was there at the greatest timej 
all," she said, describing how ]

working for the university's radio 
station. At Northwestern, she is a 
staff member of student publications 
and is featured on the KNWD 
speciality show "The Eclectic Hours 
with The Wonder Twins." 

At VaxjO University, she was in a 
class of 30 Americans and30 Swedes. 
Despite a treacherous five-hour exam 
after each course, Walsh advises 
students wishing to participate a 
foreign exchange program to actively 
pursue their goal. "If anyone has the 
slightest desire to study abroad, do it 
now. The ISEP program will really 

knows three different languages, and 
was always conscious of foreign 
styles and fashion," she said. 

She also saw a great emphasis on 
the environment among the students 
and the general public. The 
govemmentdiscouraged the purchase 
of automobiles with high costs and 
taxes because of their addition to the 
pollution problem. Walsh was also 
amazed at the high prices of regular 
items. For example, a can of Coke 
was $1.50, and gas was $4 a gallon. 

Walsh thought the Swedish diet 
was also very different Meals usually

Edwards is studying English at 
Prince Edward Island. On the other 
hand, Prince Edward Island is "a little 
escape." A small agricultural 
community, it is known for its 
seafood, lobster, crabs, and potatoes. 
The university of 3500 students and 
the entire province with its population 
of only 128,000 is a haven from the 
bustling city of Toronto. "Everyone 
is welcoming and friendly, there is a 
wonderful sense of comraderie and 
no need to lock your car doors," said 

Most foreign exchange students 
encounter many differences in 
schools and people when they choose 
to study in a foreign country, but 
Edwards has not. She has found that 
there is much more school spirit here 
than at her home university. At the 
first football game of the season she 
was surprised to see "so much 
entertainment other than the football 
game — theband.cheerleaders.pom- 
pon line, dance line, and others." 
There is not a Greek system and not 
as much school spiritat the university 
she attends. 

Edwards is participating in the 
ISEP program because she enjoys 
travelling. She spent last summer in 
France and did not want "to spend 
another winter in the cold and snow 
of Toronto," so she chose a southern 
state in which to study. She considers 
the ISEP program an adventure and 
looks forward to seeing much more 
of the area. 

Andre Farret, from the city of 
Sheffield, England, says that "it is 
strange to see America in the flesh. It 
has always been 'over there.' " On a

England, along with Scotland and 
Wales, is a part of the island country 
of Great Britain. Sheffield has a 
population of approximately 100,000 
and is situated in the central pan of 
England. England was once an 
industrial country that manufactured 
steel. Now that it is no longer a major 
manufacturer, towns are being 
cleaned up to attract tourism. 
Sheffield is hosting the 1991 World 
Student Games and hopes to attract 

the Olympic Games to help boost its 
economic system. 

The first impression Farret has of 
the United States is that "there is 
much more technology here than in 
Britain." When he arrived at the 
Dallas airport he had to take a shuttle 
to another concourse. The doors 
automatically opened when he 
stepped up to the transit system and 
I inside a voice told him to be seated 

and where he would be taken.

Students planning on leaving or 
entering the campus from the 
entrances by Chaplin's Lake and the 
Teacher Education Center may be in 
for a surprise. A new ruling from 
Northwestern's administration has 
mandated that those two entrances be 
barricaded at certain times of the day. 

According to Rickie Williams, 
chief of university police, the 
barricades were established to prevent 
non-university students from entering 
the campus. Over the years, police 
have observed that Northwestern has 
had a heavy campus traffic flow not 
related to the university, students or 
faculty. According to Williams, many 
of these people have been harassing 
students and causing disturbances 
during the night. 

Fred Fulton, director of student 
life, explained that the barricades 
"simply improve the security of the 
campus by restricting the traffic flow 
at certain areas in the late hours." 

The new mandate was put into 
effect at the last summer session, but 
Williams said "it was too early to tell 
if the barricades were effective." 
Since the beginning of the fall 
semester the barricades have only 
been in operation for two weeks. 

In case of a fire or medical 

emergency, the Natchitoches fire 
department and ambulance service 
"have been notified of the barricades 
and will know to use another 
entrance," Williams said. 

Both Williams and Fulton realize 
that the barricades are an 
inconvenience to students, but as 
Fulton said, "once students know 
when they are closed it will not be as 

Barricading campus entrances is 
only one of the solutions to the 
problem of harassment from non- 
university students. Williams said 
that if university police "spots a car 
late at night that does not have a NSU 
sticker, we will follow them around 
to see what they are up to." If the 
police realize "intentions are not good 
or if they plan to harass students we 
will stop the car and have them fill 
out an interrogation card." 

The entrances will be open until 5 
p.m. each day and will not be reopened 
until 9 a.m., but Williams did mention 
that the hours are subject to change. 
There will also be barricades on all 
the entrances during semester breaks 
and holidays except for the Caspari 
Street entrance by the police station. 

"We are going to observe and see 
if it has an impact," Fulton said. "If 
it proves to be effective, we will 
probably continue to do it."

to speak 

Staff Writer 

Nicholas Negroponte, director of 
the Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology's Media Lab, will speak 
at 11 a.m. Thursday as a part of 
Northwestern's Distinguished 
Lecture Series. 

Negroponte's speech, the topic of 
which is "Inventing the Future," will 
be held in the A. A. Fredericks Fine 
Arts Auditorium. 

Dr. Edward Graham, vice- 
president of 
feels that the 
is fortunate 
to have 
here. "It's 
quite a coup 
to get him," 
he said. 
"Students will get a taste of the future 
and we hope this will be an interest to 
the faculty." 

The Media Lab is a community of 
different communication areas 
attempting to allow the public greater 
accessibility to information. 

"They're not just a think tank," 
Graham said, "they're a 'do tank' in 
the respect that tiiey are active in 

Most of the research done at MIT 
involves the "personalization" cl 
computers. One area that Negroponte 
is interested in is the concept of 
personal newspapers. The idea is 
similar to die news computernetwork 
in use today, but the topics would be 
preselected according to the user's 

Other areas examined by the MIT 
Media Lab include the interaction of 
hand and eye motions and vocal 
instructions with computers, 
holograms and teaching children 
advanced computer skills. The Media 
Lab has also adopted an inner-city 
school in Boston and provided each 
student with a computer. With this 
program, they hope to promote a 
technical environment in which they 
will have a research lab while the 
students receive a quality education. 

Negroponte has worked 
extensively with communication and 
computer technologies and the idea 
of combining the two for more 
personal services. 

He received both his bachelor's 
and master's degrees in architecture 
and became involved with computer 
technology, and consequently with 
the Media Lab, in conjunction with 
otherarchitects who wanted to exploit 
the computation and visual abilities 
of computers.

NCAA ruling 

Sins of the past visited 
upon current team 

"It's time for this thing to be over with." 

Those were the words of Dr. Alost after the National Collegiate Athletic 
Association's ruling of a three-year probation for Northwestern's men's 
basketball team. It's been five years since the ordeal started and now that the 
sentence has been passed, it seems that the wrong persons are being punished. 

The NCAA found that Don Beasley , former coach for the Demons, and his 
staff had committed 43 separate violations — that's right, 43 — ranging from 
cash gifts to players and recruits to arranging for team managers to take the 
SAT for recruits who did not meet the NCAA's academic eligibility re- 

One of the most appalling violations was the $20,000 check given to a high 
school coach in order to influence a recruit to come to Northwestern. The 
player did not enroll at the university, however, and the check was not cashed. 

Looking at the 1 1 pages of single-spaced type which outline each violation 
of NCAA rules (infractions run from A to QQ), one cannot help but be 
dumbfounded. Many wonder why no one knew that these crimes were 
happening, but as Beasley himself once said, "No one knows what a coach is 
doing in any given city on any night." 

This finally came to light in 1988 via the university's own internal probe, 
a factor which led the NCAA to thankfully lessen its final ruling. If 
Northwestern had not initiated the investigation into the rules violations, 
Prather Coliseum may not have had a 1990-1991 men's basketball season. 

"The best way the team can 
deal with this is - - - with the 
support of the student body, 
faculty and administration of 

President Alost, who said the university will not appeal the decision, called 
the incident one of the "darker chapters in Northwestern athletics and one that 

is now closed." 

It is truly unfortunate that the current Demon basketball team, who have 
clone quite well under present coach Dan Bell, must suffer for the violations 
which occurred at a time when almost none of them were on the team. 

Although most of the players, and certainly Coach Bell, feel relieved that 
the rulings have been f inally passed down, it is difficult for them to have to 
play under the shadow of what has gone before. But as Bell said at last 
Wednesday's press conference, it's time to move on. 

The best way the team can deal with this is to head full swing into the 
coming season. And they can only do this with the support of the student 
body, faculty and administration of Northwestern. 

When the Demons hold their first game down in Prather next month, the 
stands should be packed with fans showing their fervent support, boosting 
both the morale of the team and the school. 

As one chapter closes, it s time to open another, brighter one — the 1990- 
1991 season of Demon basketball.

In defense of Scholars' Colleges 

'Undeniably on education's cutting edge 

It seems that the Louisiana 
Scholars' College has come under 
fire in the past year. Several times it 
has been "exposed" as betraying the 
students, luring them here with false 
promises. I would like to offer a 
different view of this. As a fourth 
year student of Scholars', I 
personally am very happy with the 
program and so are most, if not all, of 
my classmates. The Louisiana 
Scholars' College has provided us 
with the best liberal arts education 
possible at a state-funded price. 

Focusing in on the students that 
began with LSC originally and then 
transferred to NSU seems to get to 
the heart of the problem, but actually 
that only looks for a problem that is 
not readily apparent True, there are 
several students that have been 
discontented with the program for 
one reason or another, but this is 
nonetheless flagrantly disregarding 
the rest who would not have had their 
education any other way. "Its the 
best education I could think about 
having," said junior William Winter. 

Also, one or two of the students 
that transferred to NSU can by no 
means be a true representation of that 
whole group. A case in point is 
senior Ken Gardner, who said, "It 
(LSC) has a lot of merit I'm happy to 
have been exposed to that sort of 
education. It's just that I want to go 
into Engineering, and I wanted to 
spend more time on my math and 
science education. I was really very 
content other than that." Gardner 
transferred to Northwestern from 
Scholars' College. 

Have there not been students 
discontented with Northwestern and 
transferred for their own reasons? 
Why is LSC so awful for its attrition 
rate? Also, how can it be explained 
that some students are transferring in

from colleges like Emory, Vandcrbilt, 
Washington and Lee and yes, even 
some from NSU? 

Many problems have been 
diagnosed by many people, but I feel 
that herein lie the true faults of LSC 
— it has yet no real established 
credibility, it doesn't have proper 
funding and it is in Louisiana. Besides 
this, it is still undeniably on the c utting 
edge of higher education. 

LS C has graduated a few students, 
but the first class is still finishing its 
senior year. Without graduates to 
represent it out in the field, the school 
cannot get the reputation and prestige 
it deserves, nor the reputation and 
prestige to attract and retain the 
desired number and quality of 

From this comes the supposed 
problem so popularly discussed — 
betrayal, which I feel shows true 
superficiality and self-centeredness. 
The program has little to offer the 
way the big-name school would, but 
on the other hand we are getting a 
terrific education and we have the 
opportunity to experience the 
excitement of forging the name and 
honor of the college. 

The second problem is the lack of 
proper funding. With the state's 
current allocation of tfioney, there is 
little hope for struggling program like 
this, but through sharing the facilities, 
physical plant and resources of 
another institution, namely 

Northwestern, LSC has a base of 
operations and a periphery to rely on . 
This is definitely not parasitic, but a 
symbiotic operation because while 
LSC relies on NSU for these things, 
NSU also relies to a certain degree on 
LSC. Because LSC is part of 
Northwestern, it provides a high grade 
of students to the university that 
inevitably get involved with 
university functions; also, LSC is not 
without its own share of endowments. 

The third problem, unfortunately, 
is completely unalterable. Because 
most of the top notch students in 
Louisiana feel that an education in 
Louisiana would be inherently 
Louisianian (i.e., backwards), they 
opt for the more traveled route of Ivy 
League, or simply, "anything in the 
North." It is unfortunate that these 
people feel it is important to spend a 
lifetime of money on tuition, when 
there are very good schools in 
Louisiana that cost much less. The 
dilemma is two-fold in that it is also 
unfortunate that they usually stay in 
the North, thus robbing the Louisiana 
of all her talented and motivated 

LSC is Louisiana's attempt at 
retention of the students. The 
curriculum it offers competes with 
the best colleges of the U.S. such as 
Williams and its like. LSC provides 
its students with an excellent 
education. "It teaches you how to 
leam, rather than teaching you facts," 

said Winter. It is a departure from 
standard established forms 
teaching. The faculty is outstanding,- will d 
and the classes are the eclectic i^geneP.Wa

Student upset over 
'socialization rule' 


Junior, Jennings 

Most of the students on 
Northwestern's campus are raging 
with anger. They are angry with the 
law or, should I say rule, of not being 
able to socialize in front of Iberville 
Dining Hall or Sabine Dorm. 
Personally, I do not see where this 
causes any confusion. 

These are areas where we as 
students have our free time from 
studying to visit and conversate [sic] 
with fellow students. Is not college a 
place to become more sociable with 
others and at the same time further 
education? Well, where can we be 
social , that is with a variety of friends? 
We go into the parking lot and there 
too we are ran away. Can we have 
some freedom? 

Yes, I am satisfied with visitation, 
but not everyone wants to be in those 
claustrophobic rooms with friends. 
All I am asking is to allow students 
the privilege to visit out in these open 
areas mentioned above. 

Students need to 
observe quiet hours 


I am writing with the hope that 
some other outraged students will 
also raise their voices in complaint 
over the loud noises inside and outside 
of Sabine Hall after a reasonable hour 
at night. 

Is the 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. quiet hours 
a joke? It must be, for no one follows 
it and, in my recent experience, some 
of our "leaders" do nothing to help 
those of us who do. My suitemates 
and my roommate have joined with 
me to try to get the offending noises 
stopped. To this point we have only 
succeeded once after making two 
attempts to solve that particular 

No, we are not chronic gripers. 
Neither are we constant complainers 
or troublemakers. We are simply 
students who just happen to be 
concerned and who, unlike many 
others, do need our sleep. I, 
personally, happen to like much of 
the music that I hear from other rooms. 
These songs are just fine at any time 
during the day, but after .8 p.m., it is 
just not reasonable. 

Music is not the only problem. 
What people do at night is their 
business, not mine. Therefore, I do 
not need to hear their plans from floor 
down, opposite end of the hall. If 
they are going to leave at 11 p.m., 
then could they just please try to 
leavealittlemorequietly? Andwhen 
they return at 3 or4 a.m., I do not need 
to to be awakened to the sound of 
shuffling, stomping feet, and a recall 
of every single event of their evening. 

If these things are not enough, let 
me tell you about an episode one 
morning at 3 a.m. Peacefully sleeping, 
with our window open to cool the 
room, my roommate and I were rudely 
awakened by the crudest cursing we 
had ever heard. Going over to close 
the window, my roommate looked 
down and was witness to an argument 
between a couple that was 
reverberating around and through 
Sabine Hall. They were shouting and 
cursing each other with an audience 
listening to every word that was 
yelled. Excuse me, but I do not think 
that this was the time or place for an 
argument of this nature. 

We, because of our efforts at

enrollment record at Northwestern 
was 6,722 in 1981. The school's 
student population declined after that 
for five consecutive semesters and 
had dropped to 5,272 when Dr. Robert 
Alost became president in 1986. 

Under Alost's leadership, 
enrollment has climbed steadily, 
increasing by 2,062 students since he 
assumed office. Northwestem's 
enrollment gains over the past four 
years reflect substantial increases in 
full-time students, incoming 
freshmen and registration on the main 

campus in Natchitoches. 

Northwestem's full-time student 
count of 4,954 this fall is an increase 
of 8.3 percent over the 1989 fall 
semester enrollment of 4,576. 
Enrollment on the Natchitoches 
campus increased this year by 5.4 
percent from 4 ,622 last year to 4 ,873 . 

Most of those enrolled on the 
Northwestern campus are full-time 
students. The full-time student count 
on the main campus is up by 6 percent 
from 3,994 to 4,235. 

Undergraduate enrollment was up 

this fall from 6,260 to 6,594 and 
Graduate School registration 
increased from 665 to 740. 

Freshman enrollment, which has 
increased by more more than 35 
percent over the past three years, 
remained stable this fall with 3,186 
compared to 3,214 last fall. 
Sophomore enrollment is up from 
1,258 to 1,297. The junior class 
increased from 8 1 9 to 975 and senior 
enrollment is up from 931 to 1,105. 

Alost said the increases in 

sophomore, junior and senior 
enrollment "reflects a high retention 
rate that forms the foundation for 
stability in enrollment. 
Northwestern 's enrollment problems 
in the past were created largely by an 
inadequate retention rate." 

In addition to the increase on the 
Natchitoches campus, the 
Northwestern Shreveport campus, 
comprised primarily of nursing 
students, showed an increase in 
enrollment from 1,159 to 1,220; the 

Leesville campus increased from 632 
to 663 and at other education centers 
across North Louisiana enrollment 
increased from 54 to 174. 

Alost called the enrollment figures 
"extremely gratifying." He attributed 
the university 's continuing growth to 
"a dedicated faculty and staff who 
work diligently to attract and retain 
outstanding students and who provide 
challenges and rich experiences that 
make Northwestern exciting and 
attractive to young people." 

mm Debate team has 'excellent beginning' 

- NSU debaters place in elimination rounds 

Having placed in elimination 
rounds at debate tournaments, 
North western' s newly-formed debate 
team has an "excellent beginning for 
such a new program," said Todd 
Graham, team director. 

On their first outing, the debate 
team placed fourth out of 35 teams 
entered in the junior varsity division 
at the tournament held at Oklahoma 
Christian University in Oklahoma 
City Sept. 21-23. The team of 
Scholars' College freshmen Sean 
Lemoine and BartFranklin advanced 
into the elimination rounds of the 
tournament. Lemoine and Franklin 
won the round of sixteen, beating 
Southern Illinois University, but in 
quarterfinals they were defeated by 
Central State University. 

The team's next tournament was 
at Emory University Sept. 28-30.

"Emory has traditionally been one of

teams from across the country 
competed in the tournament's junior 
varsity division and all three 
Northwestern teams made it to the 
elimination round. 

Lemoine and Franklin beat 
Vanderbilt University in octa-finals 
and were then defeated in 
quarterfinals by Kansas State, the 
defending junior varsity national 
champions. LSC freshman Jason 
Foote and his brother Marcus Foote, 
a junior at Scholars' College, also 
advanced to quarterfinals by beating 
Duke University, and finished in a tie 
for fourth. 

Scholars' College juniors Bryan 
Racer and Buddy Hays made it to the 
final round before being beaten by 
KansasState. Racer and Hays finished 
second overall. 

Individual awards were won by 
Lemoine, sixth speaker, and Hays, 
second speaker. 

"Northwestern had a great 
tournament. To have all three teams

such good competition is a big 
accomplishment," saidGraham, who 
attributes the team's success to "the

Tri Sigmas receive national award 


Photo by Tony Means 

Al Villavaso, professor of mathematics, demonstrates a method used in his classroom to math teacher 
Dr. Stan Chadick. Chadick recently formed the Teaching Circle forprofessors to critique each other in order 
to improve teaching methods. 

Chadick creates Teaching Circle 

Staff Writer 

The Faculty Teaching Circles is a 
new "learning support group for the 
instruction of teachers" that has been 
instituted by Dr. Stan Chadick. 

The group operates under the 
premise that if a college teacher 
observes his peers teach, is observed 
teaching by his peers, and meets in 
small groups to discuss good teaching, 
the resulting awareness will improve 
his teaching. 

Teaching Circles at Northwestern 
include several groups of five to seven 
faculty members with one or two 
members of the group designated as 
facilitators. Facilitators, who are 
determined by participants, are 

recognized as teachers that will 
organize the events of each group. 

Participants in a particular group 
will remain together for one semester 
and observe each member teaching a 
• class at least twice. This semester, 30 
faculty members were asked to 
participate. Groups will be rearranged 
next semester to allow more 
interaction among the teachers. 

Teaching Circles are "a notion 
about teaching awareness" and 
emphasis is placed on the observer 
rather than the observed. 
Observations are recorded to help in 
the collection of good teaching 
techniques and are shared at group 

Each Teaching Circle will meet as 
a group at least three times during the 
semester to discuss their observations 
and to formulate statements that will 
be compiled into a document on good 
leaching. Students and other faculty 
members are encouraged "to give 
their input on what they would like to 
see from teachers at Northwestern 
along the lines of technique rather 
than evaluation," said Chadick. 

"I hope to see the Teaching Circles 
take a bottom-up approach to 
instruction, expand and welcome 
teachers who have been teaching for 
any amount of time to volunteer as 
members for upcoming semester's 
groups," said Chadick.

More than 160 members of Sigma 
Sigma Sigma sorority gathered at 
Northwestern last weekend to attend 
the Dunham Leadership Conference 
Program as part of a national series of 
regional conferences. 

Actives and pledges from St. 
Mary's University in San Antonio, 
Texas, University of Southwestern 
Louisiana, Nicholls State University, 
Southeastern Louisiana University, 
University of Southern Arkansas, 
University of Central Arkansas, and 
Western State University in Colorado 
came to Northwestern for the two- 
day event. 

"It was a great honor to have been 
chosen to host the conference," said 
Reatha Cole, an Alpha Zeta alumna 
who is also a national collegiate 

On Saturday and Sunday, Tri 
Sigmas attended programs that 
focused on leadership and 
communication, chapter operations, 
membership selection, rush 
improvement, rituals and National 
Panhellenic procedures. The 
programs were lead by Tri Sigma' s 
national president, Ann Williams, 
along with the regional alumnae 
director, two national collegiate 
chairwomen and the 1992 national 
convention chairwoman. 

"I feel like the workshops and 
programs showed me that we're not 
only the only women who shared 
these ideals and beliefs," said Rhondi 
Sandifer, president of the Alpha Zeta 
chapter. "By meeting members of 
these other chapters, especially the 
other three in Louisiana, I realized 
that there are more than 50,000 more 
girls across the nation who believe 
the same and perform the same rituals. 
I think our chapter benefited a lot 
from the programs." 

An awards banquet culminated 
Saturday's events. 

"This region received more 

national awards than any others," said 
Williams. The Alpha Zeta chapter 
received the 1989-90 National 
Education Program and Scholastics 
Award, one of the most prestigious 
awards given by the national 
organization. The award entitles 
Sandifer a trip to a collegiate board 
meeting at the sorority's executive 
offices in Woodstock, Va. 

Tri Sigmas honored at the banque 
included Shreveport am 
Natchitoches alumnae, includinj

Les G rands Ballets Canadiens, one 
the outstanding performing arts

icert appearance Thursday at 7:30

Jiwestern's A. A. Fredericks 
* jitive and Performing Arts Center, 
pallet titles for the dance concert 
JSU are "Serenade," the first ballet 
1 the late George Balanchine 
ireographed after arriving to North 
lerica in 1933; Act III of 
lymonda," original choreography 
Marius Petipa with additional 
ireography and staging by Terry 

Westmoreland; and "The Heart of 
the Matter," a 1986 work 
choreographed by James Kudelka, 
Les Grands Ballets Canadiens' 
resident choreographer since 1984. 

Balanchine's 1935 "Serenade" 
features the music of Tchaikovsky's 
"Serenade for Strings," was staged 
by Victoria Simon for Les Grands 
Ballets Canadiens in 1975 and is 
presented by arrangement with the 
George Balanchine Trust. 

"The Heart of the Matter," created 
for the Joffrey Ballet, and "In 
Paradisum" for Les Grands Ballets 

Canadiens are considered to be a 
landmark works that have helped to 
establish Kudelka as an international 
force. He joined Les Grands Ballets 
Canadiens in 198 las principal dancer, 
a performance role he played until 
being named resident choreographer 
in 1984. Kudelka has been hailed as 
one of North America's major young 
ballet choreographers. 

Founded by Ludmilla Chiriaeff in 
1958, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens 
has played a decisive role in the 
development of dance in Quebec and 
Canada. The company of 45 dancers

Rogers became interested in acting

community theater when she was 27

During this time she also worked

that she is touring with the show, she 
flies home to Cincinnati every two 
weeks to spend time with her husband 
and their two children, ages 12 and

______ The actress compared the 

mpetition in theater to that in the 
orate world — in both areas one' s 

in achieving success. To demonstrate 
this, Rogers told what she called her 
"humbling story." When she obtained 
the role of Madame Thenardier, she 
was waiting to continue her graduate 
studies and was temporarily working 
in the "Guess Your Age and Weight" 
booth for an amusement park near 
Cincinnati. "So don't lose faith in 
yourself," she advised the students. 

One job that Rogers said helped 
her performance abilities was singing 
telegrams. She learned a great deal 
because the audiences were so 
difficult "They would boo you right 
out of the room if you gave them the 
chance," she said. She did not, 
however, mention the "Guess Your 
Age and Weight" booth as something 
that prepared her for stage work. 

Rogers' professional goals lie both 
on the stage and behind the camera. 
Her contract with Les Misirables 
expires in 1993,butby then she hopes 
to have the opportunity to either 
understudy or hold the role of Carlo tta 
in Phantom of the Opera as well as to 
do television or movie work. Also 
interesting to the actress is a new 
musical based on Ma and Pa Kettle 
currently in development.

Chopin essays released 

SfarY Writer 

The NSU Press' most recent 
release, Perspectives on Kate Chopin, 
offers a written collection of the essays 
that were given at the Kate Chopin 
International Conference that took 
place on Northwestern 's campus 
April 6-8 in 1989. 

Chopin was al9th-century writer 
that came from St. Louis to 
Natchitoches Parish with her husband, 
Oscar Chopin. She used this area as 
the basis for many of her short stories, 
and her most well-known work, The 
Awakening, is set in South Louisiana. 

The conference brought scholars 
from all across America and from 
Paris, France and was sponsored by 
the Louisiana Endowment for the 
Humanities and the Association for 
the Preservation of Historic 

Perspectives was published 
through a grant from the National 
Endowment for the Humanities and 

is sure to generate interest in this 
writer important to the Louisiana 
heritage, according to Dr. Ada Jarred, 
head of Northwestern' s Watson 
Library and director of the conference 
committee, and Dr. Grady Ballenger, 
editorial consultant for the book and 
director of the Louisiana Scholars' 

"This is a scholarly work produced 
by a group of academicians," Jarred 
said. "We hope it will add to the body 
of knowledge about this Louisiana 
writer that's become so well-known 
in the last 20 years." 

Jarred also points out that Chopin' s 
works have been "reclaimed" by the 
feminists, because they do much to 
reveal the thoughts and feelings of 
feminism today. 

Ballenger feels that both the 
conference and the book are important 
to the university. "It's the kind of 
thing that a university should do to 
keep scholarship alive," he said.

'Good Woman of Setzuan' quite good indeed {Bel 

Davis breathes life into productiofr e ar 


"Horrible," "three hours of 
boredom" and "I know why the Nazis 
banned Bertolt Brecht's works — 
they had good taste in theater" were 
just a few of the negative remarks 
overheard in the audience during last 
week's run of The Good Woman of 

However, after viewing last 
Friday's performance of the first fall 
theater production, it's evident that 
the people making those remarks 
wouldn ' t know "good theater" if they 
tripped over it 

Three newcomers to Northwestern 
theater, Ashley White, Suzanne 
Wallace and Jimmy Rubio, played 
the roles of the Illustrious Ones, gods 
who visit the earth to find proof of 
human goodness. Of the three, 
Rubio's quavery portrayal was the 
best, while White and Wallace's 
bombastic readings were at times 

Rubio's performance was well- 
done throughout; from where he 
made it rain in Act One to his second 
act appearance with the heavenly 
chariot (actually a golf cart), his odd 
style brought life to the threesome. 

The sets and costumes of <

Directed by Vicki Parrish, the 
avant-garde Good Woman was an 
enjoyable show strengthened by its 
costuming, original music and sets 
and especially by the performance of 
its lead, Lola Davis. 

Davis, whose last appearance on 
the university stage was as Annelle in 
Steel Magnolias, has improved a 
thousandfold. As the compassionate 
Shen Te, the last good person in the 
land, the actress performed 
admirably. With her quiet, almost 
subservient demeanor, she was able 
to bring out the character's kindness 
with considerable aplomb. 

Other standouts among the cast 
included Lynn Gilcrease as the 
shrewish landlady Mrs. Mitzu, Kelley 
Graham as the socially-climbing Mrs. 
Yang, Jeremy Passut as the devious 
flier Yang Sun, Melissa Trumble's 
gossipy Mrs. Shin (Trumble plays a 
delightful drunk), and Damian 
Domingue as Wang, the friendly 

Wh ite and other cast members also 
affected accents that, a few nights 
earlier, had not appeared on stage. 
Although these new twists (such as 
Rubio's hilarious twitching) on the 
characters were interesting, some of 
them shouldn't have come up in the 
middle of the play's run. 

Comic relief amid all the 
existential goings-on was welcome. 
Reminiscent of Father Guido 
Sarducci.Todd Dupree's priest didn't 
say much but didn't need to — his 
appearance alone brought laughs. 

Kent LaBorde's lisping waiter, 
DeAnna Gonzales' toothless beggar, 
David Shamburger as the 
unfortunately-named carpenter Lin 
To, and Joanie Garner's old woman 
were all wonderful touchesof humor. 
Garner especially made the audience 
laugh with her spot-on portrayal of a 
crotchety, yet kind-hearted, crone 
(many people are still wondering 
about her "Elvis?" line). 

a few of these numbers, espe< 
the rapping sequence in Act 
Making up for these low points 
the beautiful signature music fo 
Illustrious Ones. 

Those dissatisfied with the 
should realize Brecht's works 
alienation theater, where the audi 
is supposed to realize at all time 
they are watching actors in a pis 
other words, viewers must sus 
their suspension of disbelief. 1 
thought Domingue's scri 
epilogue was an actual apolo; 
the play, missing its true pi

have done wi( „ nc ier the coaching reigns of Don 
• Beasley. 

It's like a tornado rips through a 
town and someone is left behind to 
pick up the pieces and start fresh. 
Dan Bell is the person left to get 
things going again and try to put new 
ideas in the minds of onlookers. 
Coach Bell commented, "It's a

iience in Act 'j the rulings are out I am proud to be 
tese low points the head basketball coach at

this season. 

"I am relieved that the waiting is 
over," said Banks. "I thank God that 
I stayed here at Northwestern and 
after everything is said and done I am 
looking forward to my senior year." 
Due to the NCAA ruling NSU will be 
ineligible for post-season play of any 
sort making hard on Banks. "Even

year and win the (Southland) 
conference," added Banks. 

Banks goes into the 1990 season 
with three major goals: First, graduate 
in May. Secondly he would like to be 
apart of a team with a winning season. 
Finally, a personal goal is to set a 
mark in the Southland Conference 
and get some recognition. "We have 
to approach the season (as a team) to 
win each game as they come. Take it 
step by step, game by game and see 
where we end up at the end of the 
season," said Banks. 

This summer Banks played in a 
NCAA-approved semi-pro league in 
San Antonio with many NBA players. 
Milwaukee Bucks guard Alvin 
Robertson, one of the league's top 
defenders, took Banks under his wing 
and helped elevate his game to a new 
level. Banks also put in a lot of 
practice time with Spurs guard Willie 
Anderson, one of the league's great 
young players with star potential. 

By late summer, the Spurs had 
inquired about signing Banks as a 
free agent But instead of heading to 
NBA training camp, Banks headed 
back home for what could be a 
memorable senior year for the 
Demons. "We have a lot of young 
guys but this is a close nit team and 
the younger players are willing to 
learn," said Banks. "The entire team 
is hardworking and has a winning 

Sophomore guard Jay Scherer 
could be a major factor. The transfer 
from East Carolina was the Alabama 
Class 6A MVP as a prep senior and 
wasaMcDonald's All-American. His 
style of play — hard-nosed defense, 
hustle and a great three-point touch 
— fits Bell's system to a T. 

Sophomore forwards Dexter 
Grimsley and Jethro Owens proved 
themselves as rookies and should 
team with sophomore center Brooks 

Bryant to give the Demons a very 
solid frontcourt 

Grimsley set a single-game record 
with six blocked shots at North Texas. 
The 6-5 Alabama product averaged 
16 points and 8 rebounds per game in 
conference play last season. Grimsley 
was last year's Southland Conference 
Freshman of the Year. 

One problem facing Coach Bell is 
that the Demons are allowed only 
two signees in the 1 99 1 -92 academic 
year and three in the 1992-92 season. 
Coach Bell must keep his team intact 
and build a new winning tradition for 
Northwestern Demon Basketball. 

Grimsley commented that Bell 
would have no problem keeping his 
young team together. 'The guys here 
are great guys," he said. "We've 
known what could happen and we've 
talked about it. We're sincere about 
wanting to be here." 

"We'll stick together," Scherer 

If so, Coach Bell may not need but 
one of the two signings he has for 
next year. Banks is the only senior. 

"I'd be very happy if I only have to 
replace one player," Bell said. "But 
even Jesus wasn't able to save all 12 
of his disciples." 

"I wouldn't be surprised if I lost 
one to attrition. If I lose more, though, 
it could become a problem." 

Bell later said, "It has been tough 
to deal with all the uncertainty, but 
now we can move ahead." Bell also 
told members of the media that 
basketball was his lifeand he couldn't 
just forget it like a bad dream. 

Like a horrible nightmare, the 
terrible scandal left behind from 
Beasley and his staff will linger 
around Northwestern for quite some 
time. But Coach Bell and his players 
have a positive attitude headed into 
the 1990-91 season and will try to 
overcome the looming shadows.

Undefeated KA wins league bragging rights 


Staff Writer 

Kappa Alpha downed Tau Kappa 
Epsilon 20-6 in last Thursday's flag 
football game and won bragging 
rights as the only undefeated team in 
the Greek league. 

Kappa Alpha dominated early. 
After three plays with only moderate 
yardage gained, KA's Kevin Fayard 
hurled a long pass to Brandt Lorio for 
the game's initial touchdown. The 
point-after attempt was also suc- 
cessful, increasing KA's score to 7. 

After obtaining possession of the 
ball, TKE's play time was cut short 
by an interception by Paul Bean of 
KA. However, KA ended the first 
half ended in their favor, 7-0. 

TKE rebounded early in the sec- 
ond half as an unguarded John Miquez 
captured the pass from John Parker to 
cut KA's lead 7-6. 

K A pulled away later in the second 

half due primarily to performance by 
Troy Cooper, Paul Johnson and Niel 
Wyatt. Cooper and Johnson both 
completed plays that laid the foun- 
dation for a touchdown by Wyatt. 
Johnson also caught the pass from 
KA's quarterback Kevin Fayard to 
pick up another extra point for his 

Next, TKE team captain Robin 
Ryder secured the kickoff to give his 
team an opportunity to score. His 
hopes were not realized though, as 
Paul Bean came through once again 
to intercept for KA. 

With the ball in KA's possession, 
Paul Johnson was quick to reprise his 

role as one of the game's principal 
offensive players to bring home the 
pass from Kevin Fayard and render 
the final blow to Tau Kappa Epsilon. 

A nine-ball pool tournament heads

Freshman Cyndy Williams and 
sophomore Sonya Williamson led 
Northwestern to its fourth invitational 
title as the host Lady Demons won 
the 1990 10-K Northwestern Cross 
Country Invitational. 

Northwestern, who was edged out 
by Northeast by three points at the 
Louisiana Tech Invitational, finished 
14 points ahead of the Lady Indians 
with 42 points. Northeast second 
with 56, followed by Southwestern 
(63), Lamar (66) and Grambling 

Southwestem's Kelly Tobin won 
the event with a time of 18:19. Lamar 

placed second and third with Liv 
Lindberg (18:27) and Ulrika 
Hellstrom (18:35). Northeast's Cathy 
Asevedo, won her last two races, 
finished fourth (18:59). 

Williams finished fifth with a time 
of 19:13 on the three mile course 
while Williamson was sixth at 19:26. 
Freshmen Judy Norris (19:44) and 
Marie Gipe (19:46) placed eighth and 
ninth, and Dianne Dubay (20:38) 
finished 14th. 

"We ran a super race. We look 
forward to our own invitational and 
the Southland Conference 
Championships, and we want to have 
a hood showing at both meets," said 

Lady Demon coach Chris Maggio. 

"The ladies have worked hard all 
year and they keep improving with 
each race. We could have easily 
finished fourth, but the girls worked 
hard and finished strong," said 

Texas A&M placed six of its 
runners in the top 10 to capture the 
men's division of the invitational. 

Lamar's Ian Mullen won the eight 
team event running the five mile 
course in 25:28 followed by A&M's

"We played poorly," said 

telrthwestern head coach Sam 
lodwin. "I was real disappointed 
the way we performed. It was a 

combination of bad offense and bad 
defense, and ASU had a lot to do with 

Critical mistakes also ailed the 
Demons. Northwestem's Ron Davis 
fumbled a punt at the Demon 22 in 
the third quarter, clearing the way for 
a 21-yard scoring toss from ASU 
quarterback Roy Johnson to Alex 
Shell, making the score 16-0 ASU. 

The Demons wasted golden 
opportunities to score throughout the 
game.penetrating ASU territory eight 
times in the game without scoring. A 
squandered opportunity midway 

through thefourthquartersymbolized 
the Demons' fortunes. 

Defensive end Troy Knight fell on 
a ASU fumble at the Indian 29, giving 
the Demons great field position. But 
apairof illegal procedure callsagainst 
the Demonsand a Brad Brown misfire 

forced the Demons into a fourth-and- 
three punt. 

The Demons didn't touch the 
pigskin again after that series. 

"The key to the game was their 
offensive control of the football," 
said Goodwin. "In the fourth quarter 
we had a chance to tie the game, and 
we punted, hoping to get it back. We 
never saw the ball again." 

ASU ' s offense handled the Demon 
defense and manipulated the game 
clock from the outset. The Indians 
gained 400 yards in total offense to 
the Demons' 241. 

ASU fired out of the chute, scoring 
twice in the firstquarter while deny ing 
the Demons of any real scoring 

The Indians' Chris Collier returned 
the opening kickoff 68 yards to the 
Demon 29. The ASU drive faltered 
at the 12, and Ryan Jose booted a 28- 

yard field goal to give ASU a 3-0 lead 
with 11:55 left in the first quarter. 

I-ater in the quarter, the Indians 
consummated an 1 1 play, 86-yard 
scoring drive with Johnson finding 
Blake Denison in the end zone from 
14 yards out. A two-point con version 
try failed, leaving ASU atop of the 
Demons 9-0. 

The pivotal play on the drive for 
ASU occurred when Johnson hit 
Chuck Mink in the clear for a 3 1 -yard 
completion on third and 13. 

The Demons scuffed another 
inviting chance to score, this time in 
the second quarter. The Demons 
moved from the ASU 43 down to the 
6, with Brown scrambling for ample 
yardage. However, the Demons 
couldn't access the ASU end zone, 
and kicker Chris Hamler's 23-yard 
field goal attempt careened off the 
right upright, turning the Demons 

away empty-handed. 

The Northwestern defense held 
firm for the rest of the half, stopping 
ASU deep in Demon territory, and 
Adrian Hardy broke through to block 
a 33 -yard field goal try by the Indians. 

The Demons finally found the end 
zone with 6:21 left in the game when 
tailback Randy Wright scored on a 
two-yard run. Brown hit tight end 
Paul Arevalo for the two-point 
conversion to cut the Indians' lead in 
half at 16-8. The Demons wouldn't 
score again. 

Brad Brown once again 
represented the Demons' principal 
threat, passing for 139 yards and 
hitting on 1 1 of 20 passes with two 
interceptions. He also led the Demons 

in rushing with 63 yards on 14 carries. 

Demon deep threat John Tappin, 
who caught scoring passes of 76 and 
66 yards against North Texas last 
week, received plenty of cushion from 
the ASU secondary and was limited 
to two catches for 18 yards. 

Demon linebacker corroborated 
his cause as an All-American 
linebacker, notching a whopping 23

Arkansas State improves to 3-2-1.

Chris McGee 

This isn't the way Dan Bell 

inWdfourt} ended for his dream 10 be 
westem(126) er P reted - 




Like many coaches, Bell, the head 
Sketball coach at Northwestern 
~lte, always dreamed of seeing his 
igram somehow forge into the same 
iminence enjoyed by national 
ivyweights such as Nevada-Las 
gas and Illinois. He got close to 
[vision last week, but it wasn ' t the 
d of elbow-rubbing Bell had in 

The National Collegiate Athletic 
sociation's Committee on 
Tactions slapped the Demon hoop 
- igram with a three- year probation 

stemming from a slew of 
improprieties that occurred under the 
regime of former Demon head coach 
Don Beasley. 

The penalty comes at a time when 
national powers UNLV and Illinois 
try to keep their boats from completely 
capsizing on a sea of scandal. 

The list of violations numbers in 
excess of 40. Along with the three- 
year probationary period, the NCAA 
also imposed a two-year ban on 
postseason competition and revoked 
live telecast privileges from the 
Demons for next season. 

Some of the other traditional 
lagniappe of NCAA sanctions were 
also to be found. The NCAA levied 
a reduction in scholarships and size 

of the coaching staff against the 
Demon basketball program and 
reduced the number of expense-paid 
visits the Demons can offer to recruits. 

Like it has done in the past to other 
programs, the mighty, swift hand of 
the NCAA swooped down to rock the 
very foundation of Northwestern 
basketball. But if you think the 
penalties were too severe, talk to Bell, 
Northwestern president Dr. Rober 
Most, athletic administrators and the 
players themselves. They were jus: 

The reason for that is the NCAA's 
original verdict called for the dreaded 
death penalty, which, in this case, 
would have idled the Demon 
hoopsters for the upcoming season. 

But where Beasley failed to 
practice rectitude in the past, the 
Demons saved face and derriere by 
providing the NCAA with sound, 
sincere and commendable 
cooperation. That, and that alone, 
rescued the program from a one- year 
termination of its very pulse. 

The crime within the tragedy rests 

in the ones who really violated 
decorum here. Beasley and his 
contingent, not Bell or his players, 
spun this entangling web. One group 
plays, and another group pays. It's 
the prevalent unjust justice that the 
NCAA must mete out. Fairness 
clamors for a better solution. 

Now that the indiscretions have 
been revealed and the penalties have 
been issued, the time has come to 
leave the past in same and head into 
tomorrow. From what Bell and his 
athletes have disclosed, they've 
already begun that operation full- 

This victimized group hasresolved 
to face and fight the adversity. 
Keeping their spirits on a high plane. 
Accentuating the positive. They feel 
if they weather the oncoming storm, 
character will be molded and a chance 
at redemption will come. 

Then, the transgressions of a past 
coaching staff will be overcome by 
the resolve of a group of players who 
ran up and down the court, but not 
away from their problems and to 
"another school.

Alumni active in Homecoming activities 

Event 'should have something for everyone' 


Staff Writer 

Homecoming is a strong tradition 
here at Northwestern for students as 
well as alumni. 

"This year Northwestern is trying 
something different There will be an 
Alumni Art Show because I believe 
Homecoming should have something 
for everyone, not just athletics. It is a 
'coming home' to memories of work 
and fun," said Elise James, director 
of alumni affairs. 

To James, Northwestern is "like 
family and home" because she is one 
of four generations in her family to 
attend Northwestern. She also taught 
at Northwestern for over 14 years 
before moving into her office in the 
Alumni Center in 1984. 

Because a homecoming is exactly 
what it says, a "coming home," many 
alumni come back to visit their alma 
mater for the entire week of 
Homecoming. This year the Alumni 
Association has many events planned 

for the alumni such as the Alumni 
Golf Tournament, jambalaya dinners, 
bingo luncheons and, of course, the 
football game against Southwest 
Texas State. Other activities planned 
include the 50 Year Reunion of the 
Class of 1940 and the 25 Year 
Reunion of the Class of 1965. 

Also for the first time, 
Northwestern will have an induction 
into the NSU Hall of Distinction, or 
the Long Purple Line. 

"It's being developed to provide 
recognition and appreciation to 
former NSU Students whose career 
accomplishments or services to their 
fellow men have enhanced the 
reputation of Northwestern State 
University," said James. 

The recipients are the late Ora G. 
Williams, Dr. Carolynn Leech 
Huntoon, Harry Turpin, General 
Urloon Wyce, Bill Dodd and Admiral 
Ronald J. Hayes. 

In addition to these awards, the 
Alumni Association is also giving 
the first Annual Teachers' Award 

which is based on teacher evaluation. 
This year's recipients are Dr. Stan 
Chadick and Dr. Marietta LeBreton. 
This year, James hopes, 

Homecoming 1990 will have just as 
many memories for the alumni to 
remember as to be made by the 
present students.

major route of communication in the 
next 10 years will be speech. The lab 
is presently working on a car that 
"knows" its own location, the 
topology of the area around it and can 
hold a conversation with the driver. 

Other aspects of interaction that 
Negroponte said were under 
development are the use of hand 
gestures, because of their freedom of 
movement, and eye motions, because 
they often signal a person's emotional 

One of the recent developments at 
MIT is the success in creating 
holographic images. These images 
are difficult to create, as they require 
extensive computer power to compute

images that have been developed. 
Negroponte said that there is still 
much more work to be done, but he 
sees a widespread use of holograms 
in medicine and even offices in the 
next decades. 

Negroponte also talked about the 
future of the media. He sees a merging 
of print media, broadcast media and 
computer use. As computers allow 
readers to pick and choose what news 
events they want to know about, most 
of those readers will want more detail 
than is presently included in the news.

"Another reason for this is it's so

Henry. "There is so much litter on the

Henry believes that the new 
regulations will be a part of the solution 
to campus litter. 'This will keep people 
from defacing the doors and windows 
with signs. They can only post material 

on a bulletin board." 

The policy states that no signs may 
be "affixedby tape onabrink, concrete, 
masonry structure, glass or other 
finished surfaces on the campus." 

Organizations are also now required 
to register their event with the Office 
of Student Activities before publicizing

Dr. Jean D'Amato, professor of 
classics at Louisiana Scholars' 
College, was invited to present a series 
of lectures at the University of Nevada 
at Reno last month as the Hilliard 
Visiting Professor in the Humanities. 

The invitation came to D'Amato 
as part of a grant received by Nevada- 
Reno to integrate a core curriculum 
into its general program , especially in 
the department of arts and sciences. 
Because this new curriculum is quite 
similar to the curriculum at the 
Scholars' College, Nevada-Reno was 
especially interested in selecting a 
faculty member from the College. 

"It was because of the national 
recognition of our program, 
particularly after the National 
Endowment for the Humanities 
program, that one of our faculty was 
chosen," D'Amato said. 

As part of a new interdisciplinary 
course at UNR, the Western Tradition, 
D'Amato lectured on Aeschylus' 
Oresteia, the only extant trilogy in 
thesurviving body of Greek literature. 
In this lecture, she addressed the 
relation between the events of this 
drama and the political development 
of the Greek city-state. 

She also examined the art and 
architecture of the United States 
Supreme Court Building. 

In addition to the lectures, 
D'Amato held talks with the 
administration and faculty members 
of UNR. She discussed with them the 
Younger Scholars' Program of the 
NEH and told them of the projects 
developed by two LSC students, Judy 
Lamothe and Laura Thorn, who 
received Younger Scholars' awards 
this past summer. 

Because of the success of the 
Louisiana Scholars' College and other 
similar programs, Dr. Gailmarie 
Pahmeier- Henry , professor of English 
at UNR and NEH project coordinator, 
is optimistic about the development 
of the core curriculum, now in its 
second year of operation, at the 

"It gives a grounded, yet broader 
basis for studies in later subjects," she 

and Community Services. 

Dr. Charles Viers, ornithologist 
and associate professor of 
mathematics at Northwestern, will 
conduct the bird study classes, the 
first of which will meet today at 5:30 
p.m. in room 205 Kyser Hall. The 
classes will continue every Tuesday 
until Nov. 27. 

The course, which requires a $40 
registration fee, is designed for all 
people interested in birds and will 
"enhance their appreciate and 
enjoyment of birds through study and 
identification methods," said Viers. 

Home economist Jan Frederick's 
first class in nutrition will begin 
Thursday at6 p.m. in room 220 Kyser 
Hall. The class will meet regularly 
on Thursdays until Nov. 15. 
Registration is $50 per person.

Publicity policy 

New ruling on signs 
should be 'stamped' out 

The new policy recently adopted by Northwestern concerning the posting 
of signs is absolutely ridiculous. Its' stated purpose is to clean up the campus 
by ridding it .df the excess paper that clutter walls and bulletin boards. This 
is a noble effort, but it will only create is more headaches and paperwork for 
all involved. 

One could argue that the policy is an infringement of First Amendment 
; rights. But as Carl Henry, director of student activities, assures us, "every- 
I tlfing yiy be approved." It is highly unlikely that anything will not be stamped 
I and approved, unless it contains blatant references to sex or alcohol (sign 
i makers, take note: "$1 beer bust" is out, but the words "your favorite 
beverage" are a handy substitute). 

The new ruling does not restrict freedom of speech. What is so bothersome 
about the policy is that is causes us to worry about yet another office 

After making the sign, filling out the purchase requisition and getting the 
signatures of the budget unit head, it must be stamped by the Office of Student 

"Sign makers, take note: "$1 
beer bust" is out. but the words 
'your favorite beverage' are a 
handy substitute." 

• Activities. This creates more work for both the person with the sign and the 
: already-overworked secretary in the SAB office. 

Another problem broughtupby the introduction of the policy is placement. 
From now on, only bulletin boards are to be used to post a flyer or poster. 

Has anyone seen the bulletin boards in Kyser (or any other academic 
building) lately? Hardly anyone notices them because of all the clutter. It's 
silly to think that anyone will give more than a second glance to an important 
message if advertising space is limited to these venues alone. 

Instead of solving the problem of litter on campus, this new policy is 
merely creating more worries for students and staff. The policy should be 
seriously examined (perhaps with student input this time?) and reevaluated.

After the game 

Laughter truly is the best medicine* 

Advocate tries to converse with humorless 

Someone once said, "Laugh and 
the world laughs with you, cry and 
you get what you want . . . out of 
sympathy . . . hey, so who's from out 
of town? You're a great crowd . . . 
sweetheart I love you, don't change, 
you're beautiful." 

Earnestly, I am uncertain if anyone 
ever really said that, though its 
likeliest roots would be somewhere 
in Toledo, Hoboken or Baltimore, at 
someplace called the Ipanema Room 
in Club-A-Go-Go. 

Regardless, be it Dorothy Parker 
or Star Search preliminaries, Lewis 
Grizzard or Gorgeous Ladies Of 
Wrestling, Woody Allen or the 
already notoriously bad Cop-Rock, I 
like to laugh. Callmeaguffawophile. 

Despite my own affection for the 
jocular, I am willing recognize an 
ever-pertinent crisis. I thus refrain 
from continually seeing the world 
through rose-colored dribble glasses. 

Tragically, there are amongst us 
those stricken with a plague whose 
terrors are so unspeakable, we dare 
only to refer to them by the acronym 
which best describes their 
predicament; Chronically Humorless 
Individuals Lacking Levity, or 

Telethons for their cause have been 
attempted with disappointingly 
minimal success. Hosted by such 
comedy titans as Ruth Buzzi, Soupy 
Sales, Lulu from Hee Haw, as well as 

Demon's Advocate 
Damian Domingue 

the currently dead but always 
hilarious Paul Lynne, rarely would 
CHILL patients do more than grimace 
and sigh at their best material . . . their 
punchlines bringing only random 
chuckles and polite applause. 

Sadly enough, their plight, which 
is difficultto treat, is diagnosed by: 1) 
an unwillingness to appreciate 
intelligent humor and instead lower 
themselves to laughing only at the 
sophomoronic antics of movies like 
Zapped, Little Darlings, and Teen 
Wolf, Too, 2) the inability to recognize 
humor, thus finding Roseanne Barr 
hilarious, while finding Woody Allen 
haughty and incomprehensible, and 
finally 3) harboring an insipid attitude 
toward humor columnists. 

Perhaps you may say 'Tell us, 
dear Advocate, why does this disturb 
you so?" Perhaps you may just say 
"Why do you give a damn?" or "Shut 
up!" Regardless of your particular 
exclamation, I intend to tell you. 

I fear that a unknowing fan misread 
an earlier column and, taking offense, 

decided that shudderingly bm^e 
verbiage was appropriate artillery. 

If such an urgent want foi 
retaliation was global then Armour, 
the potted meat-food company at 
which an earlier article was much 
more viciously targeted, would have 
certainly annihilated this advocate, 
as would have beauty pageant 
contestants, Chitimacha Indians, 
Trappist monks, AquaNet Inc, Bob 
Barker, and countless others. 

Harassment is relatively 
nonexistent. (Admittedly however, 
five suspicious callers who identify 
themselves merely as Danny, Donnie, 
Joe, Jon and Jordan, have been 
relentless with their threats. Their 
primary activity includes warn ing me, 
through constant repetition, of some 
heinous penalty which will occur 
"Tonight, Tonight"). 

So you may ask, what is funny? 
Practically everything, but the 
question should be what isn't funny? 
Or rather, what isn't funny although

IT program 'solid 
value for its majors' 


Professor, Industrial Technology 
If the Sept. 25 article in the Current 
Sauce entitled "Industrial Technology 
Could Lose Accreditation" was 
designed to stir studentresponse, your 
goal was accomplished, judging from 
the steady stream of students around 
campus who wonder if their 
educational efforts are being eroded. 

The article contained a great deal 
of truth and much to be concerned 
about. Yet there were just enough 
suppositions to muddy the total 

First of all, the Industrial 
Technology program has not lost 
accreditation and, in most certainty, 
will not Through the use of federal 
grants and some industrial donations 
of equipment and resources, IT has 
continued to improve its programs. 
This, coupled with a resourceful 
faculty, make Northwestern's IT 
programs a solid value for its majors. 

Secondly, we must consider the 
consequences should the IT program 
happen to lose its accreditation 
because of underfunding or because 
of realignment into the Department 
of of Mathematical and Physical 

It is probable that few employers 
even know that the program is 
accredited by the National 
Association of Industrial Technology. 
NAIT is becoming accepted at the 
national level and in academic circles 
as a worthy professional organization . 
Yet few industrial and technical 
business leaders know it exists. 

To the graduates of 
Northwestern's IT programs, this 
means - that they will continue to 

demand a beginning salary that is 
among the highest of all graduates of 
NSU. And, even though the job 
climate in Louisiana is still cloudy, 
there are plenty of employers looking 
for good industrial and electronic 

It is no secret that all academic 
programs at Northwestern and 
throughout the state suffer from a 
lack of sufficient funding. Our 
chemists lack even the most essential 
chemicals and equipment for 
laboratory experiments. Our 
physicists must make do with 
outdated devices and procedures. 

Yet, I also hear about the woes of 
my colleagues who are teaching in 
similar programs in other states. 
Seldom do they experience the 
debilitating lack of professional or 
student secretarial support as we do 
here, however. 

The Industrial Technology 
program's external funding has kept 
its programs competitive. Within the 
past three years alone, over $ 1 1 6,000 
has been obtained for IT as a result of 
federal grants obtained by its faculty. 
This is in addition to State Department 
of Education research grant monies 
in excess of $100,000 given to the 
program through Dr. Eppler, Dr. 
Dennis and Dr. Shaw. Within the 
past month, a $28,000 robotic system 
has been added to the computer- 
controlled machining system, 
completing a computer-aided 
manufacturing cell. A few months 
before that, $16,000 worth of 
electronics equipment was added to 
the electronics engineering 
technology lab. 

In reference to a statement in the 
Sept. 25 article, the IT faculty believe 
that Drs. Alost and Graham are fully 
aware of the value of the Industrial 

Technology programs to 
Northwestern, to the economy of this 
state and to to the preparation of 
students for high-paying positions of 
leadership in our technical markets. 

KNWD management 
denies equal time 


Junior, Natchitoches 

This is in response to the letter by 
Carter Ross. 

Carter Ross, you say you are 
against fascism. How do you define 
fascism? What actions fall under the 
realm of fascism? Does the act of 
censoring the media so that only 
messages from organizations that 
have the same political viewpoints as 
the powers in charge are presented to 
the public qualify? And what if 
someone rises to power and fills other 
positions of power with people that 
have been friends and allies? This is 
commonly known as "Good ol' boy" 
or the "Good Buddy" system. 

If I write against fascism, I would 
do my best to prevent these things 
from happening. But you are not; you 
are the one doing them. Anyone that 
you do not agree with does not have 
a chance of getting a public service 
announcement on the air. 

I find it to be a strange coincidence 
that the College Republicans PSA 
never found its way to the rotation. 
What about the Armed Forces PSAs? 
Why were they never aired? What 
can you possibly have against them? 
If it were not for the Armed Forces, 
hypocritical fascist "liberals" like you 
would not have the rights to free 
speech and presentation of opposing 
opinions. These are rights that you 
suppress. Many liberals say that 
political awareness is important, but 
how can I be politically aware if you 

allow your political bias to interfere 
with the fee flow of information? 

And what about your staff? How 
many of them are Scholars College, 
ex-Scholars College or ex-Louisiana 
School students? If your staff is not a 
prime example of the Good Buddy 
system 1 do not know what is. But 
since you do not let them do their jobs 
1 guess it is a puppet Good Buddy 

Correct me if 1 am wrong, but is it 
not the news director's job to 
determine which PSAs do and do not 
get on the air? Last time I checked it 
was. In case you are wondering where 
I got my information, I have friends 
at KNWD. I will not mention their 
names because, as one put it, they 
think you are such a fascist that if 
they openly oppose you you will find , 
one reason or another to take them of f 
the air. So the next time you claim to 
be against fascism, look at yourself 
and see what you can do to stop it 

Carter Ross, you are a very 
politically motivated person. By itself, 
there is nothing wrong with that But 
when you let these motivations 
control the radio station's day to day 
activities, it is wrong. You fail to 
realize something. The station is ours, 
the students of Northwestern, not just 
yours. We do not want the one-sided 
view of the issues that you have so far 

Believe it or not, Carter, there are 
people with different opinions than 
yours. Not everyone wants to change 
the world. As general manager of 
KNWD, it is not your job to convince 
them they are wrong for thinking this 
way. If you want to do that, do it on 
your own time in your other campus 

KNWD is public radio. It is 

regulated by FCC rules and 
guidelines. You need to follow them 
and quit censoring the media. Your 
to do one of two things. First of all 
you can clean up your act, even if this 
means doing PSAs for organizations 
that you are against and accurately 
presenting both sides of the issues, 
yours and theirs. If you feel that you 
can not comply with this, then your 
only other choice is to step down as 
general manager and allow somebody 
to replace you that can. 

If someone were censoring the 
media and presenting only the ideas 
that conflicted with yours, you would 
be very angry. You wouldn't want it 
done to you, so quit doing it to us! 

Noise regulations 
too strict on students 


Freshman, Tullos 

It has come to my attention that 
the students atNorthwestern are being 
restricted to death. 

In two weeks, we have received 
two bulletins cautioning us about 
"violations" of the noise restrictions 
and visitation regulations. What are 
these rules? Are they the eleventh 
and twelfth commandments? Were 
they carved in stone or found next to 
a burning bush? 

It seems to be asinine to treat 
college students like first-graders. For 
the money we pay to go to 
Northwestern, we could be asked a 
bit nicer to obey the rules than in a 
cold, authoritative form letter. 

1 am 20 years old. I will not be 
intimidated orbulliedby a militaristic 
administration. 1 think the students 
should have more of a say in the rules 
and regulations of the college. I think 
you would find the students would

\lcohol Awareness Week to focus on responsible drinking 

faff Writer 

Northwestern students are helping 
the prevention of alcohol abuse by 
goring "Alcohol Awareness 
gek" this week on campus. 
«An important partnership can be 
ijmed between students, faculty, 
\^ ministration and the community to 
\ i;ourage students to make 
jponsible decisions regarding 
iol," said Brandt Lorio, local co- 

chairman of the National Collegiate 
Alcohol Awareness Week committee. 

Activities at Northwestern will 
coincide with the similar efforts being 
made nationwide by students during 
National Collegiate Alcohol 
Awareness Week. Programming will 
include various displays and activities 
across the campus aimed at prevention 
through education and individual 
responsibility in connection with the 
use of alcohol. 

Now in its sixth year, the national 
campaign is sponsored by the Inter- 
Association Task Force on Alcohol 
and Other Substance Abuse Issues, 
which represents professionals on 
student affairs across the nation. 

"President Alost's support of 
Alcohol Awareness Week at NSU 
has made the development of the 
week's activities possible," said Lisa 
Simms, co-chairwoman for the 

National Collegiate Alcohol 
Awareness Week committee. "We 
would also like to thank both the 
S tudent Government Association and 
the Student Activities Board for 
providing funds for our week's

Three new ways to survive college. 

- .. ..- 

The Macintosh Classic 

With Apple's introduction of three new 
Macintosh* computers, meeting the challenges of college 
life just got a whole lot easier. Because now, everybody 
can afford a Macintosh. 

The MftHPilftl^mffiHIU is our most 
affordable model, yet it comes wi th everything yo u need- 
including a hard disk drive. The IMIIWMHIB 
combines color capabilities with affordability. And the 
MIWIIWKllJflSl is perfect for students who need a 
computer with extra power and expandability 

No matter which Macintosh you choose, you'll 
have a computer that lightens your work load without 

The Macintosh llsi 

giving you another tough subject to learn. Every Macintosh 
computer is easy to set up and even easier to master. And 
when you've learned one program, you're well on your 
way to learning them all. That's because thousands of avail- 
able programs all work in the same, consistent manner. 
You can even share information with someone who uses a 
different type of computer-thanks to Apple's versatile 
SuperDrive™ which reads from and writes to Macintosh, 
MS-DOS, OS/2, and Apple* II floppy disks. 

See the new Macintosh computers for yourself, 
and find out how surviving college just got a whole lot

Demons suffer first loss in Southland Conference, 38-21 

Sports Writer 

Northwestern State gave until it 

Constantly trying to rally in the 
second half, the Demons committed 
three critical turnovers, and McNeese 
State converted the Demon largess 
into 17 points, effectively dehorning 
the Demons 38 21 Saturday night in 
Cowboy Stadium. 

The victory places McNeese in 
sole possession of first place in the 
Southland Conference race at 2-0 and 
improves the Cowboys' overall 

record to 3-3. The Demons stumble 
to 1-1 in the SLC and 2-4 overall. 

The Demons had the ball third and 
goal from the Cowboy 6 in the third 
quarter, but quarterback Brad Brown 
was intercepted by McNeese's David 
Easterling, who raced 96 yards the 
other way to give the Cowboys a 28- 
14 lead. 

The Demons cut into the lead when 
Brian Driskill plunged into the end 
zone from two yards out at the start of 
the fourth quarter to bring 
Northwestern within 28-21 of 

The Demon defense stymied the 
'Pokes on the next series, forcing a 
punt, but punt returner Ron Davis 
fumbled, and McNeese recovered at 
the Demon 24. After the Cowboys' 
drive sputtered, kicker Eric Roberts 
booted a 38-yard field goal to give 
McNeese a 31-21 lead late in the 
fourth quarter. 

The Cowboys intercepted a 
Northwestern pass late in the game to 
seal the Demons' fate. McNeese's 
Robbie Fizier later scored on a 7- 
yard run to put McNeese atop 38-21. 

The Demons were cognizant of 

the Cowboy running game, but it was 
the McNeese passing attack that 
unglued the Demon defense. 

McNeese quarterback Wes Watts 
blistered the beleaguered Demon 
secondary in the first half, completing 
12 of 16 passes for 286 yards and 
three touchdowns. 

Watts singed the Demons early 
and often, hitting Jeff Delhomme and 
Adam Henry for scoring bombs of 73 
and 76 yards respectively. 

"I 'm not surprised they went deep, 
but they beat our best defensive back 
on man-to-man coverage," said 

Northwestern head coach Sam 

Goodwin was alluding to 
comerback J.J. Eldridge, who was 
the victim on both bombs. 

Brad Brown scampered 15 yards 
for the score to polish a six play, 80- 
yard drive. The touchdown tied the 
game 7-7. 

Leading 14-7, Watts and company 
struck again. This time, the lefty 
quarterback hit freshman Erwin 
Brown for a 28-yard scoring toss. 

After recovering an Eric Foster 
fumble, the Demons scored on a 1- 

yard runby Brown to make it 2 
Cowboys. Brown led the 0$ 
with 1 3 1 yards rushing on 26 ca 
The statistics didn'treflect thej 
Northwestern outgained the Co* 
in total offense 46 1 yards to 328, 
Demons contained the Co\ 
running game, permitting the 
gain just 36 yards rushing. 

After playing three straight a 
on the road, the Demons will n 
home this Saturday to engag<

Volleyball drops two 


Staff Writer 

NSLPs Lady Demon volleyball 
team added two games to a six-game 
losing streak last week to drop to 6- 
13 overall and 0-3 in the conference 

Tuesday the Lady Demons were 
at home against Stephen F. Austin, 
and lost a heartbreaker 12-15, 15-9,

Northwestern were freshman Jamie 
Fleischer with 20 kills, senior Sonja 
Olsen with 12 kills and 22 digs and

Tri Sigma paired a well-rounded 
defense with a hard-hitting offense to 
"knock off competitors Sigma Kappa 
in last Thursday'sflagfootball action. 

"Total team effort" was what Tri 
Sigma coach Rob DeSoto attributed 
to his team's decisive win. Although 
hesitant to point out key players, he 
referred to Maria Anderson, who 
scored 19 points against Sigma 
Kappa, as "the girl to stop." 

In the game'sfinal minutes, Sigma 
£appa waged an intense, although 
futile battle against Tri Sigmaas Dorie 
Chellette, Kempa Meacham and 
Rhondi Sandifer scored consecutively 
to ensure Tri Sigma 's victory by a 52- 

"We were missing several of our 
key players," said Jamie Weaver, 


Finally, team golf will tee off Oct. 
23 and 24. Each team must consist of 
four people with each memberplaying 
1 8 holes. Leagues are open to Greeks,

Unless you really enjoy reading manuals, 

get a Macintosh. 

Tim Moses 
Computer Science 
Vanderbilt University 

"Macintosh practically eliminates the 
need to keep manuals next to my computer, 
because-regardless of which program I'm 
using-I can open, close, save, and print files 
in exactly the same way And you cant say 
that about any other computer. 

"Today lots of other computers are attempting 
k to look and work like a Macintosh, but it's just not 
possible. They're too fundamentally different 
, to begin with. This may sound a little 
strange, but comparing a Macintosh to 
other computers is like comparing 
apples to oranges. You can squash the 
orange into shape and paint it to look 
like an apple, but underneath the 
makeup, it's still an orange. 

"It's funny-I work at the Vanderbilt 
computer store and IVe seen lots 
of people switch from other com 
puters to Macintosh, but IVe never seen 1 
anybody with a Macintosh switch to 
another computer."

Campus pizza place passes paper's poll 

itself int 

page 2 

Staff Writer 

After hours of tedious taste tests, 
days of gathering highly secret 
scientific statistics and a few nights 
of indigestion, the results are in. The 
first ever, and probably the last, 
Current Sauce Pizza Test is over and 
we have a winner. 

First of all, let it be known I tried 
to be as unbiased and objective as 
possible. I would hate to be chastised 
by some person who has a personal 
passion for a particular pizza place. I 
have eaten more pizza than anyone at 
Northwestern, not that this proclaims 
me an authority, nor a connoisseur by 
any means, but "Jason knows pizza." 

Last Tuesday, Wednesday and 
Thursday at 8 p.m., the test was 
conducted. An order for a medium 
pepperoni pizza to be delivered to 

Bossier Dorm was made by phone. I 
carefully evaluated each pizza in 
temperature, taste, the attitude of 
delivery people and even the number 
of pepperoni on each pizza. 

I timed the delivery, calculated 
the price per size, judged the service 
and finally rated the taste. 

All six of the Natchitoches 
pizzerias received a letter grade in 
four subjects. Understanding that 
everyone has different preferences in 
pizza, taste counted for only 25 
percent of the grade. 

And the winner? None other than 
Northwestern's very own Itza Pizza. 
If you ha ve not tried their pizza within 
the past few months, I suggest you 
should as it has improved. They were 
the fastest to deliver, one of the best 
tasting, and both the service and price 
were highly rated, as well. Itza Pizza 

scored above average in all four 
categories and took first in the overall 

If taste is imperative and you are 
not worried about price, try Pizza 
Inn. A medium pepperoni pizza at 
Pizza Inn will set you back $10.46 
without coupons. They were however, 
in my opinion, the best overall tasting 
pizza in town, and second in the test. 

Domino's is an old faithful. 
Customers can count on it being 
delivered within 30 minutes or they 
will get a discount. It ranked third in 
the test with a reasonable price, good 
service, average taste and delivery. 

Even though Second Street Pizza 
lost my order and I received the pizza 
90 minutes after I first ordered it, I 
placed them fourth because they were 
very apologetic for the 
misunderstanding and gave me my 

pizza for free. Second Street's pizza 
also is the most reasonably priced 
pizza, but the taste of the pie lacked 

Fifth place goes to Mr. Gatti's. In 
my opinion, Mr. Gatti's has the best 
nightly buffet. I would not, however, 
recommend ordering one to be 
delivered, because even though their 
price was reasonable; Gatti's scored 
only average in all other categories. 

Pizza Hut came in last in my test 
because they do not deliver. Price 
and taste were average and the service 
was friendly, but I had to drive up to 
the Strip to get my order. 

Everyone should realize this test 
is strictly my opinion. Itza Pizza will 
not be crowned "Official Pizza of the 
Current Sauce" or receive a trophy or 
any other prestigious pizza privileges 

for that matter. or have my next pizza order \ 

I hope I offended no one. I would with Ex-Lax, after writing sm 
hate to be ambushed by delivery boys Pulitzer for pizza performance.

Adopt-the-campus program begins 

Staff Writer 

Recycling and a proposed ban on 
styrofoam and aerosol hairspray are 
just a few of the issues that will be 
addressed by the newly-developed 
Campus Improvement Program of 
theStudentGovernment Association. 

The improvement program is an 
effort to make students "more aware 
rather than just academics and extra 
curricular activities," said Kent 
LaBorde, program chairman. 

One of the main issues that will be 
presented to the students is the "adopt- 
the-campus" campaign. With this 
project, "the students will be able to 
become involved in thebeautification 
of the campus," LaBorde said 

Each organization atNorthwestern 
can choose a part of the campus to 
adopt. The organization can do basic 

organization. Last year, there was an 
environmental club started on 
campus, .but the group was never 
chartered due to the lengthy approval 


The SGA decided to absorb the 
club into their organization, so they 
would not have to go through the 
chartering process and also because 
"it is an issue that is very important," 
Robinson said. 

Other issues such as recycling and 
an environmental awareness week 
are in the planning stages. SGAplans 
to place a recycling bin for paper, 
bottles and aluminum cans at each 
trash can location on campus. 

The environmental awareness 
week is scheduled to debut some time 
this semester. 

"The environmental awareness 
week will give the students a chance 
to try and not use aerosol hairspray or 
walk to class instead of driving," said 

LaBorde. "It is not that hard to 
conserve, and then maybe they will 
keep on doing it." 

"My outlook is if we can get at 

least 20 to 30 students aware of the 
things they do and how it effects the 
environment, then we will have 
accomplished something," Robinson

they may be more creative by planting _ 

shrubbery or trees. 

LaBorde explained that the 
organizations must keep their area 
clean or "they will lose it or they will 
not get credit for it."

Hie Loft Theatre Series debuts 
ight at 7:30 in the Loft Theatre, 
209 of the A. A. Fredericks 
ive and Performing Arts Center. 

Hie series places "emphasis on 
playwright's material and the 
f 's work" more than the main 
6 productions, said Dr. Jack 
""i artistic director of the theater 
!fcm at Northwestern. The Loft 
1 W is a "different but equally 
"riant" facet of the university's 
"ft program. 

^mon Carroll, Northwestern 's 
focal director, refers to the Loft 

as a "laboratory space" where the 
students are trained to not rely on the 
elaborate costumes, sets and lighting 
designs that accompany other 
productions. There will be no set, 
basic lighting and suggested costume 
for the series. 

Six actors will share their work 
through performance as well as 
discussion. Each piece will be 
followed by a short discussion during 
which audience members will have 
the opportunity to ask questions of 
the actors. Topics range from thematic 
to social and, said Wann, "All of 
these pieces have been chosen 
because of their highly discussable 

The first piece is an excerpt from 
Final Placement by Ara Watson. 
Performed by Patty Breckenridge and 
Alice Cappel, the scene addresses 
abuse and society 's inability to aid its 
ignorant and abusive members. 

After the discussion period, 
Marlene Canfield will follow with 
Jane Martin's Fifteen Minutes. Other 
performers should find this interesting 
as Canfield's character, an actor 
herself, takes the audience into 
confidence to share her fears of the 
painful self-exposure of performance. 

Another Martin piece follows 
Canfield' s discussion and afterwards, 
Dana Hebert will do Rodeo, which 

studies how commercialization 
changes and cheapens things that were 
once loved. 

The final work of the evening 
belongs to Holly Haahn and Gidget 
Anthony. Haahn's monologue is A 
Loss of Roses by William Inge and 
Anthony's piece is entitled To JilUan 
onHer 37thBirthday. Eachexamines 
human loss and the desire to repair 
past actions. 

Due to their shorter length and 
similar subject matter, the last two 
pieces will run consecutively before 
joint discussion.

series is free.

African historian 
to sing history 

Papa Bunko Susso, a West African 
griot from Gambia, will be featured 
in a free workshop and stage 
presentation today at Northwestern. 

As a griot, Susso is an oral historian 
and musician who preserves the 
history of his people through song. 
Hailing from a family of griots dating 
back to the 13th century, he was 
taught his art by his father, who had 
learned it from his father, as the 
information had been passed on to 
other generations before them. 

Like other authentic griots from 
the eastern most region of Africa, 
Susso accompanies his songs by 
playing a kora, a 21 -stringed harp- 

Susso, who spends much of his 
time with the Manding Music and 
Dance Company, which he founded 
in 1972 to promote the arts of his 
people in the United States, is 
uniquely qualified to convey to 
American audiences how the songs, 
epics and proverbs of the Mandinka 
peoples portray a deep respect for 
traditional values of truth, history, 
family and social responsibility. 

To familiarize people with the 
culture of West Africa, Susso will 
conduct a workshop for school 
children from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. in 
room 207 of Russell Hall. This 
program will be followed at 7 p.m. by 
his public stage performance in the 
Magale Recital Hall of the A.A. 
Fredericks Creative and Performing 
Arts Center. 

Students enrolled in the Louisiana 
Scholars' College are especially 
anticipating Susso's performance, as 
many of the students have just 
completed a thorough examination 
of the Sundiata: An Epic of Old Mali 
as one of the assignments in their 
"Texts and Traditions" great books 

seminar course. 

"Americans may be familiar with 
the West African griot as a result of 
Alex Haley's novel Roots and the 
resulting television mini-series, 
because it was a griot who provided 
Haley with much of the genealogical 
information for the African section 
of his story," said Dr. Janet Sturman, 
assistant professor of humanities for 

In West Africa, the griot serves 
the community by teaching a prince 
his duties, mediating disputes and 
remembering treaties and agreements. 
This material, supplemented by 
historical data, makes up the songs of 
a griot' s repertoire. 

"It is awe-inspiring that a man, a 
griot, can retain the history of an 
entire land its people in his memory," 
said Tasha Munsen of New Orleans, 
a freshman at LSC. "What is more 
amazing is that this same man can 
relate this history in song." 

Susso, who is a master of the kora 
and has taught many to play the 
instrument and has built several koras, 
has performed at numerous major 
universities, museums, churches and 
cultural events throughoutEast, West 
and Central Africa, Europe and the 
United States. 

In 1965, Susso was chief kora 
player in the Gambia National 
Cultural Troupe and in 1967 led the 
Sora Music Cultural Troupe, 
performing for various heads of state. 

The workshop and stage 
performance at Northwestern are 
sponsored by LSC through a grant 
from the Louisiana Endowment for 
the Humanities, an affiliate of the 
National Endowment for the

Speaking out 

Fear of reprisals affect 
student expression 

It's a device often used by the major media — a source unwilling to give 
his or her name is shown on television in a darkened room or is referred to with 
a pseudonym in print. 

This allows for sensitive information to be made known to the general 
public. But many believe it's a copout, a shield used by cowards who are too 
scared reveal their name. To some, using false names or withholding names 
not only lessens the credibility of a statement, but it also makes the paper or 
television station running the story less believable. 

The Current Sauce's policy concerning the withholding of names has 
already been made evident. Letters which come into the office must be 
signed, but at the author's request, names can be omitted in favor of the now 
familiar "Name Withheld." Only the editor knows the name of the letter 
writer, no one else. 

We also rely on sources within the university community, some of whom 
fear reprisals from administrators, teachers and even students. As much as 
we'd like to print their names and further our journalistic responsibility to the 
truth, we are obligated to keep our promise to them and not run their names. 

It is unfortunate that in a story examining the problems of a certain 
academic program, the paper cannot print the names of students and faculty 
who have provided us with quotes. Many who spoke with us during our 
Scholars' College series requested that their names not be printed because 
they were afraid. 

Afraid of what? The popular belief, not just at LSC, is that if a student 
speaks out against a faculty member, a department or especially an admin- 
istrator, they will suffer dire consequences. In the case of the Scholars' 
College students, they feared they would not graduate if they offended certain 
professors who examined their senior theses. 

Other students not in Scholars' have also expressed opinion against the 
university but have asked that their name be withheld. One particular person 
mentioned that she was also getting ready to graduate and could not risk the 
possibility of a conflict with the administration. 

Even administrators themselves ask, when sensitive issues are discussed, 
that their name not be printed or that their comments are off the record. Their 
fears are similar to that of students: a quote may "get back" to someone in a 
higher position, thus causing reprisals. 

The Code of Conduct in Northwestern 's Student Handbook specifically 
states that "students shall be free to take reasoned exception to data and views 
offered in the classroom and to maintain personal judgement about matters of 
opinion, without fear of penalty" (Article III, Section 2.3). It's inane to think 
in this day and age that students are afraid to say something against authority 
because they fear a possible retaliation. 

It is the student's right to speak freely about anything that he or she sees 
tit. We are guaranteed immunity against academic reprisals. Someone 
shouldn't be afraid to say something if they disagree with a teacher's lecture 
or a an administrator's policy, especially at a liberal arts college such as 

Vocal minority giving LSC 'a black eye' 

As the only sanctioned conserva- 
tive on the Current Sauce staff, I 
usually find myself with a wealth of 
possible topics for my one column of 
the month. This month was no dif- 
ferent as the evil head of the liberal 
establishment poked its ugly little 
head out more than once, to be sure. 

The most deserving of mention is 
the Louisiana Scholars' College. 
Unfortunately for the more orthodox 
students, a vocal minority is giving 
the program a black eye. 

It is a well known fact that LSC 
has the majority of the "unique," a 
kind term indeed, students on this 
campus. We also know of the plethora 
of special interest groups that call 
Russell Hall home. Itis abig-mouthed 
liberal ' s dream come true, with groups 
ranging from the extremist Earth 
First! to the sexual devianthomophile 

With close scrutiny, we find no 
group collectively representing the 
needs of the conservative students at 
LSC. This lack of an opposing opinion 
paints the Louisiana Scholars' Col- 
lege into the left-wing corner in which 
it now resides. 

While the lack of a opposing view 
is a major problem, there is one more 
pressing and more alarming. The LSC 

From the Right 
Todd Martin 

is gaining the reputation of advocat- 
ing sexual deviancy. While not a 
pronounced aim of the faculty, it is 
becoming clearer that homosexuality 
and lesbianism are being accepted to 
a degree that is unnecessary. 

We give an immediate look to the 
AIDS colloquium required of all 
LSC seniors. It was determined that 
these seniors would be forced to en- 
roll in a class describing the pitfalls 
of a predominately homosexual dis- 
ease. Admittedly, the AIDS epidemic 
does require strong measures, but no 
more so than those of hepatitis or 
breast cancer. From what I under- 
stand , there were no required seminars 
on hepatitis nor any on breast cancer, 
yet these two pose a far greater threat 
than that of AIDS. Further, any 10- 
year-old can tell you that AIDS is a 
disease of lifestyle and if you don't 
share needles and practice safe sex, 
your risk of exposure becomes very 


Yet in the interests of scholarship, 
an AIDS seminar was made manda- 
tory. Evidently this little outrage 
wasn't enough, as the College invited 
several persons either with the dis- 
ease or in the high risk category to 
speak in a classroom setting. These 
included a lesbian priest, and a ho- 
mosexual infected with the AIDS 

These "speakers," using very 
abusive and explicit language, ac- 
cused the students of homophobia 
and gay-bashing. The "class" rapidly 
took on the appearance of a homo- 
sexual rights rally with the liberals 
and gays being the most vocal and 
abusive of them all. Many admitted 
moderates in the class were incensed 
at the turn the seminar took, and the 
conservatives were genuinely out-

Listener likes Ross' 
changes at station 


Senior, Natchiloches 

I have been a resident of 
Natchitoches for 15 years and a 
listener of KNWD for the last seven 
or eight In all of that time, I have 
seen, or rather listened to, KNWD 
change formats, boost its signal and 
survive disco. I remember (as some 
of you might) when KNWD was 
broadcast out of Russell Hall in a 
room the size of a closet 

In my opinion, Mr. Ross has done 
an outstanding job this semester. It 
used to be that the station manager 
inflicted his or her personal musical 
tastes on the DJs and the playlist, 
resulting in a homogeneous radio 
station that appeal to such a small 
percent of listeners. Thus, you had 
one style of music being played over 
and over again, whether it was Devo 
or Boston. A person can only take so 

Mr. Ross has instituted a program 
that offers something for just about 
everybody. To me, he has taken the 
needs of the university and its students 
first by trying to offer a medium that 
appeals to all people. While a lot of 
people may be unhappy or even 
outright mad at these changes in 
format or may have some kind of 
personal vendetta against Mr. Ross, I 
am quite pleased. 

Early in the week I can listen to 

progressive or I can listen to AOR or 
rap or college alternative, something 
not available from any other radio 
station in this area. KNWD has 
definitely evolved, and all for the 

To all of you disgruntled people, 
well, why don't you turn some of 
your anger and bitterness towards 
something more profitable, like being 
concerned about the entire state of 
affairs at this university? If you can 
get mad over KNWD, then I think 
you could get just as upset over the 
lack of funds for higher education or 
faculty flight or a hundred other 

Shame on those who attack our 
university's radio station when they 
could attack other radio stations for 
their narrow music tastes and 
commercial-packed programming. 
Large radio stations are only 
interested in ratings which means that 
groups like New Kids on the Block 
suffer from overkill. 

KNWD offers the student body to 
such worthless musical talent, and as 
a long-time fan of the station, I 
applaud Mr. Ross and his attempts to 
move KNWD and Northwestern 

SAB had no right 
to 'deface' vehicles 


Sophomore, Alexandria 

Thursday morning on my way to 
my 8 a.m. class, I was met by an 

upsetting event. My truck had been 
defaced by white paint 

I was told to contact the Student 
Activities Board, so I did. They took 
responsibility for the act. When I 
informed them that I wanted the 
situation remedied, I was told that 
they had no intention of asking 2000 
people permission nor would they 
clean the mess. 

If I or any other studenthad defaced 
the SAB office (which I felt like 
doing), we would have had to suffer 
extreme penalties. Why can they 
deface our property and get away 
with it? 

If they are willing to deface 2000 
cars without permission, then they 
should be required to clean them as 

P.S. I'm still waiting for my truck 
to be cleaned. 

Students must live 
with current rules 


Sophomore, Fort Polk 

It has also come to my attention 
that there are many restrictions on 
Northwestern students, Mr. Duke A. 

But, as a fourth semester student 
I'd like to remind newcomers and 
"old men" that in this wide world of 
so-called "adults," not everyone is as 
responsible and/or mature as they 
claim to be. 

If it takes a formal letter to get the 
attention it needs, then so be it. Some 

students wouldn't even know about 
these regulations if they weren'tgiven 
these bulletins, since a majority of 
thiscampusprobably nevereven open 
their handbook long enough to look 
at the pictures. 

As I have always believed in 
situations like this — "if you're not 
guilty of it, then you have nothing to 
worry about." Those who feel so 
compelled to be noisy or play their 
music loud in the dorms, I hope their 
neighbors and their RA come to an 
agreement before the administration 
has to. 

As for the visitation, regulations, 
don't you think they're reasonable? 
What could you possibly be doing 
that you both have to be in your dorm 
room after visitation hours? (How 
desperate! In your dorm room! How 
tacky!) If some people can't stand to 
be away from their "man" or 
"woman" for the evening, then buy a 
can of Raid and go to the El Camino! 

I agree with you that the students 
should have more to say involving 
the regulations. We are paying them 
to provide us with a higher (and more 
expensive) education, not just a high 
school away from home. But until 
something is actually done aboutthese 
rules we do have to live with them. 

I support your ideas for student 
involvement, although you sound like 
an over-stressed, over-tested 
freshman. Being intimidated by 
photocopied regulations is ridiculous. 

Trash cans are provided in various 

locations on campus. If you feel you 
are too old (whoa — a big '20') and 
mature or you just don't need these 
reminders, then pitch them! There's 
no regulation against that! 

Stereotype of military 
women not fair 


Junior, Wilkes-Barre, Pa. 

As you stop by the Student Union 
for lunch, you notice a young lady in 
a camouflage uniform. What do you 
think of her? What comes to your 

Do you picture her to be a very 
masculine person who curses and 
swears in every spoken sentence? 
Do you picture her as someone who 
spends their free time crawling in 
mud for thrills? Do you picture 
someone who can do more push-ups 
than Sylvester Stallone? Or maybe 
you think she's out to change the 
world by proving that women aren't 
the "weaker sex." 

Do you see her as an outcast? 
Maybe you feel as though that's the 
only life she has; she can't make it in 
the "real world," so she chose the 
alternative, the last resort 

Perhaps your view of her conforms 
to the former views and you think 
that women in the armed forces are 
uninformed, they have no clue of 
what's going on. Some might even 
think of these women as tramps! After 
all, look at Hot Lips Houlihan! *

Broughton and Stimer competed 
with nominees from Army ROTC

Two Northwestern professors, Dr. 
^arietta M. LeBreton in history and 
pf. Stan R. Chadick in mathematics, 
, a ve been selected as the first 
e cipients of the NSU Alumni 
association's Outstanding Teacher 

LeBreton and Chadick, who were 
■hosen primarily on the basis of 
w dent evaluations of the veteran 
Lssroom teachers, received a S 1 ,000 
^sh award and commemorative 
daque at the Homecoming 

LeBreton, who has a doctorate in 
jstory from Louisiana State 
[diversity in Baton Rouge, began 
aching here in fall of 1963. 

An outstanding researcher and 
writer, LeBreton is probably best 
nown as the historian who is the 
ithor of the book, Northwestern 

Rivalry to be renewed Saturday 

State University of Louisiana: 1884- 
1984 :A Jstory, which waspublished 
by the NSU Press for the university's 
centennial celebration. 

LeBreton, who received the NSU 
chapter of Phi Alpha Them's Clio 
Award in 1987 for outstanding 
contributions to the study of history, 
is recognized throughout the south 
for her research and publications in 
the field of Louisiana history. 

This is the third time in four years 
that Chadick has been recognized bv 
students, faculty and the 
administration at Northwestern for 
superior professional excellence as a 
classroom teacher. 

In March of 1 986 he was voted by 
the mathematics majors to be 
considered for the position of 
distinguished professor of the arts 
and sciences, and in December of 

1986 he was one of three professors 
who received NSU's first 
Distinguished Faculty Chair awards 
which recognized teaching and 

Chadick, who has a doctorate in 
mathematics from the University of 
Tennessee, is in his 20th year of 
teaching at Northwestern. He has been 
a member of the NSU mathematics 
faculty since the fall of 1969, except 
for the 1 983-85 academic years when 
he served as the curriculum 
coordinator for the Louisiana School 
for Math, Science and the Arts which 
is located on NSU's main campus. 

In addition to teaching, Chadick 
also has served Northwestern as an 
administrator. He was chairman of 
the Department of Mathematics for 
one year, 1982-83, and director of the 
Louisiana Scholars' College for one 
year, 1987-88. 

The Student Government Asso- 
ations of Northwestern and North- 
It have joined together to sponsor a 
ogram that will take the place of the 
nual State Fair game. 

"Because the rivalry between NSU 
Id NLU has continued to grow over 

past two years, we would hate to 
t the friendly competitiveness 
long the students come to an end," 
dSarah Robinson, SG A president, 
fe wanted to find some way to keep 

the relationship between the two 
schools going." 

The theme for the first game is 
"East Meets West I, the Rivalry has 
just begun." T-shirts for the event 
will go on sale today in the Student 
Activities Board office for $5. Horns 
will be sold for $2.50. 

A caravan of NSU students who 
are going to Monroe Saturday will

directly to Brown Stadium parking 
lot on NLU's campus where both 
schools will hold a tailgate party 
featuring the band "Frankly Scarlet." 
A cheerleader challenge, along with 
a variety of other spirit competiuonv 
will be held between the NSU and 
NLU students. 

"We need the support of the stu- 
dent body as we begin this new tradi- 
tion," said Robinson.

Banks, Dixon named pre-season All-SLC 


Senior point guard Roman Banks 
and sophomore forward Dexter 
Grimsley represent Northwestern 
State on the Preseason All-Southland 
Conference men's basketball team 
announced this week. 

Banks, of Shreveport, and 
Grimsley, a product of Abbeville, 
Ala., were standouts last year for the 
Demons Banks was second- team 
All-SLC and Grimsley was the SLC 
Freshman of the Year. 

Lady Demon senior guard Iris 
Dixon of Natchitoches was named to 
the women's Preseason All-SLC 
squad. Both teams were chosen by 
the league's sports information 

Northwestern was one of only 
three SLC teams, joining defending 
champion Northeast Louisiana and 
1989 tournament champion 
McNeese, to place two players on the 
men's squad. 

The Demons, 1 0- 1 9 last year, were 
picked to finish third in the league by 
the SIDS while SLC coaches 

predicted a fifth-place finish. Both 
groups agreed Northeast will repeat 
as champion. 

The Lady Demons were chosen 
for a third-place finish by the 
conference coaches and picked for 
fourth by the SIDS, although 
Northwestern has been second for 
the last two seasons. Two-time 
defending champ Stephen F. Austin 
was a consensus pick to repeat and 
the Ladyjacks had four players on the 

Preseason All-SLC squad. 

Banks is on pace to set 
North western's career assist record 
midway through the season. Grimsley 
set a si ngle game blocked shot record 
(6) last year. 

Dixon is the top returning scorer 
for the Lady Demons, 17-'i21astyear. 
She will lead the Lady Demons 
against the Spanish National Team 
on Nov. 7 in an exhibition game.

The Price was right for Southwest 
Texas State Saturday. 

Southwest Texas quarterback 
Gilbert Price carved up a leaky 
Northwestern State defense, rushing 
for 208 yards on 29 carries to spur the 
Southwest Texas Bobcats to a 21-12 
victory over Northwestern in Turpin 
Stadium, thus spoiling the Demons' 

Price orchestrated the Bobcat 
offense with deft precision, moving 
the ball mostly on his own meriL 
Price detected gaping holes often and 
shot through them with dangerous 

Coming in, the Demons were wary 
of Southwest Texas' ground clout. 
The Bobcats entered the game as the 
rushing leaders in Division I-AA, 
averaging 3 1 3 yards rushing a game. 
Because of Price's sublime 
performance, Bobcat star fullback 
Reggie Rivers took on secondary 
status, but he still managed 132 yards 
rushing on 23 totes. 

The Bobcats amassed 378 yards 
rushing on the day, their second best 
total of the season, while the Demon 
defense looked clueless against the 
Southwest Texas ground assault. 

"They just whipped us," said 
Northwestern head coach Sam 
Goodwin. "From the middle of the 
third quarter on, they pretty much did 
what they wanted to on both sides of 
the ball. We ought to be thankful it 
was as close as it was because they 
ripped our defense pretty good from 
start to finish." 

It was the Northwestern offense 
that initiated the ripping, however. 
The Demons took the opening kickoff 
and promptly negotiated a 12-play, 
80-yard drive, with tailback James 
McKellum racing around an open 
left side from four yards out for the 
touchdown. Southwest Texas 
blocked Chris Hamler's extra point 
bid, keeping the score 6-0 Demons. 

Southwest Texas quickly 
responded. Rivers capped an 11- 
play , 66-yard drive on an 1 1 -yard run 
to paydirt with 3:10 left in the first 
quarter. The PAT gave the Bobcats a 
7-6 lead. 

Albeit brief, Hamler experienced 
the feeling of a true hero. The senior 
placekicker shook off an atrocious 
slump, nailing field goals of 42 and 
45 yards in the game. The former, 
which closed out the first-half scoring, 
provided the Demons with a 9 7 lead 
at intermission. 

Southwest Texas' running game 
picked back up at the start of the 
second half. The Bobcats mounted 
another threat, marching to the 
Demon 30 after taking the half s 
opening kickoff. The drive stalled, 
though, and the Demons dodged a 
bullet when Adrian Hardy rammed 
through and blocked a 47-yard field 
goal try by the Bobcats' Robbie 

The Demons turned Southwest 
Texas' misfortune into points as 
Hamler later kicked the 45-yard field 
goal to nudge the Demons to a 12-7 

Unfortunately, the Southwest Texas 
ground brigade wasn't yet through 
with maneuvers 

Later in the third quarter, the 
Bobcats reclaimed the lead when 
Todd Scott rambled in for a three 
yard score to put Southwest Texas 
ahead 13-12. The try for two failed. 

Jobcats reclaimed the lead when Saturday to wage battle with

similar play, Fast Break's Melinda 
Frankhn captured the pass from Peggy 
Leno and ran 20 yards to even the 

score 6-6. 

Dixon then came back with a three- 
yard rush to put another six points on 
the board for the Hooperettes which 
maintained a strong defense to prevent 
Fast Break from scoring again, thus 
securing the campus championships. 

ESAD's Brent Walker opened 
scoring with a fifteen-yard rush in the 
closely-matched mens] game. Kappa 
Alpha quarterback Kevin Fayard 
returned the favor by evading ESAD's 
offense and running into the endzone . 
Troy Cooper followed Fayard's 

points to increase KA's lead 13-7. 

ESAD rebounded temporarily in 
the second half with a completed 
touchdown pass by Jay DuBois. 
However, KA soon dispelled ESAD's 
state tournament hopes as Fayard 
rejoined Cooper to add two more 
touchdowns to the KA's account 
while extending the fraternity ' s record 
as an undefeated team. 

Team captain Fayard credited a 
"strong defense" and "catching them 
off guard" as the strategy that won 
the championship for his team. He 
hopes that by maintaining its present 
defense and "opening up" its offense, 
Kappa Alpha will be as successful in

Many Northwestern students 
igible for Pell Grant refunds are 
ecoming frustrated because they 
ave yet to receive their financial aid 

"In a small office like ours, you 
ork on one thing at a time," Gil 
(ilson, director of financial aid, said. 
We are caught between processing 
ifund checks and working on late 
inancial aid reports. Either way 
Miieone is mad." 

Mad is an emotion many students

"I had to go get a job at a 
convenience store last week to pay 
some bills," said Robert Washam, a 
junior from Shreveport. 
"Northwestern owes me $250 dollars, 
and they said the check was in the 
mail Friday. I still have not received 

Washam also is upset about the 
way he is treated at the financial aid 

"I keep calling, but they are very 
rude and act like they are doing me a 

favor when all I want is the money 
they owe me," he said. "For a 
department that is supposed to be 
student-oriented, they aren't doing a 
very good job." 

Gilson says he understands 
students being upset, but "we are 
working as fast as we can." He also 
says his department, as well as college 
financial aid departments around the 
state, are grossly understaffed. 

Northwestem's main problem is 
that all of its financial aid paperwork 
is still done manually. Computer 
software should be installed in the.

'East meets West' successful 

NSU students show team spirit in Monroe 

Pw QUI AM MOM I PDrco o • t/-.u_- /- »t .. . * . .... 


Staff Writer 

A new tradition has been officially 
started to replace the State Fair Classic 
football game between Northwestern 
and Northeast Louisiana University. 

On Oct. 27, the Demons took on 
Northeast Indians at the NLU campus 
in Monroe for "East meets West" 
Prior to the football game, there was 
a tailgate party and a pep rally which 
featured the band Frankly Scarlet and 
the Cheerleader Challenge. 

The Challenge featured 
Northwestem's Keri Moses and 
NLU's Laurie "Boosie" House, a 
former NSU cheerleader, competing 
against each other to see who could 
hold a hand-extension pose the 
longest. In this stunt, a male 
cheerleader holds a female 
cheerleader upside-down by her 
hands above his head and both 
persons' arms are fully extended. 

According to Karen Engeron, 

Social Chairman for Northwestem's 
Student Government Association, 
House was victorious but it wasn't 
for lack of skill or strength on the part 
of Moses and her partner Scott Dugas. 

"I think Boosie's victory can be 
attributed in part to her determination 
to beat her old squad," Engeron said. 

Overall , Engeron said turnout was 
"wonderful" considering this was the 
first year of the event 

Engeron and a group of NSU 
students posted over 30 Demon spirit 
signs along State Highway 20 en route 
to Monroe. 

A flag football game had been 
planned between the two colleges' 
StudentGovemment Associations but 
because NLU had no team, the 
competition will be rescheduled for 
later this semester. 

Brooke Williams was among 
Demon fans attending the day's 

"The Cheerleader Challenge was 

great and I had a really good time," 
Williams said. 

Concerning NLU's victory in the 
football game, Wade McClure said 
the outcome of the game would have 
been different if not for the first 

"I think we played good but the 
first turnover set the mood of the 
game," McClure said. He added that 
he likes the idea of "East meets West" 
and next year's will probably be 
"really great." 

A general feeling among those 
attending the event expressed the 
whole day would have been more 
exciting had more NSU students 
traveled to NLU to support the Demon 
football team. 

"We just hope 'East meets West 
II' will beeven better," said Engeron. 
In 1991, Northeast will travel to 
Natchitoches for the game. 

Students must pass state tests 

Proficiency exams ensure 'minimal skills' 


Staff Writer 

Northwestern students are now 
required to pass state-required 
proficiency tests in math and English 
in order to graduate and receive a 

The proficiency tests are to ensure 
that students have the minimal skills 
required for graduation. Every student 
who entered the university as a 
freshman after the fall of 1987 is 
required to pass these exams, which 
are given four times a year and are 
required by the Board of Regents. 

Dr. Austin Temple, head of the 
Department of Mathematics and 
Physical Science, suggests that students 
take the math proficiency test 
immediately after they take Math 106. 

"It is important to be adequately 
prepared and to take the test as soon as 
possible," he said. The success rate of 
the Northwestern math exam is around 
65 percent 

Head of the Department of 
Language and Communications, Dr. 

"This is the first time we've done 
this," said Potpourri Editor Van 
Rodney Reed. "There's been a great 
demand for retakes, so we're able to 
allow more students to take their 
pictures for the yearbook." 

Honor fraternity 
sponsors fun run 

The first annual Blue Key Bash 
Autumn Day Run, sponsored by 
Northwestem's chapter of Blue Key 
National Honor Fraternity, is 
scheduled for Saturday. 

The race consists of a five- 
kilometer race and a one-mile ran. 
First place overall male and female 
runners in the one-mile ran will 
receive awards. Both events are open 
to runners and walkers of all ages. 

The first 100 paid entrants will 

Sara Burroughs describes the English 
proficiency exam as a test on 
"composition or essay construction 
skills. Organization of the writing 
body is the most seriously considered, 
however there must be a minimum of 
errors such as spelling." 

Burroughs also states that the 
department "comes down extremely 
hard" on sentence errors such as 
fragments. The standard by which the 
department grades the tests is if the 
paper would have received a "C" at the 
end of English 102. 

Burroughs says students will have 
no problem if they completed freshman 
composition and the literature 
requirements for their particular 
curriculum. Approximately 80 percent 
of the Northwestern students who take 
the exam pass. 

A failing grade on the tests will not 
affect a student's academic records, 
and each test can be taken again until a 
passing grade is received. 

Louisiana Scholars' College 
students are expected to pass the math 

receive a t-shirt and a free ticket to 
Saturday's Northwestern vs. Sam 
Houston football game. 

Registration on race day is from 7 
a.m. until the state of each race, 8:30 
a.m. for the one-mile ran and 9 a.m. 
for the five-kilometer ran.

However, according to Dr. Darrell 
Colson, coordinator of curriculum at 
LSC, LSC students must take a 
different English test 

The LSC exam tests the same 
material and skills as theNorth western 
exam and uses the same standards set 
by the Board of Regents. "The exam 
provides an opportunity to evaluate the 
common curriculum offered at 
Scholars' College," said Colson. "It 
allows the testing of the retention and 
digestion of core curriculum material." 

Colson emphasizes that the LSC 
test is not intended to be any harderand 
actually cannot be harder than the other 
tests, since the grading must only meet 
the Board of Regents minimum 
expectations. "Any Scholars' College 
students who plan to graduate in 1 99 1 
or 1992 must pac-s these tests," said 

The Scholars' College test is 

scheduled to be administered Nov. 15 
and Dec. 14.

Refund checks 

Money should not be 
Christmas present 

Many students come to Northwestern on scholarship while others use 
federal aid money such as Pell Grants to finance their college education. At 
other universities, this money, less tuition costs, is given directly back to the 
student during registration. At Northwestern, however, it's a different story. 

Students who receive federal aid are entitled by law to that money, but 
NSU has not processed the checks, causing students to wait. The grant is 
addressed to "John Doe, student," not "Northwestern State University." The 
school should not delay the refund of these checks. 

Even officials at the Federal Department of Education agree that students 
should not have to wait to get what's coming to them. "A month is too long," 
said Jim Moore, spokesman for the Secretary of Post-Secondary Education in 
Washington, D.C. 

Many students rely on these refunds for purposes other than school. Since 
it is their money, they can use it on anything to buying books at another 
bookstore to paying rent on their apartment. If that money is scheduled to be 
spent on a car payment, it is downright unfair for the student not to receive the 
refund check immediately. 

At Louisiana State University, students are presented with a refund check 
for their federal money when they complete the registration process. That 
may be too much ask for Northwestern, but at least they could provide 
students with their money before Christmas. 

Equal rights bill 'very Republican' 

George Bush had some 
unwelcome company last week. 
Louisiana gubernatorial hopeful and 
former Ku Klux Klansman David 
Duke was in Washington to see if 
Sen. J. Bennett Johnston would vote 
to override President Bush's veto of 
the 1990 civil rights bill. 

Johnston did indeed vote against 
the veto, as did 65 of his colleagues 
— just one vote shy of dodging 
President Bush's bullet. Like most 
who supported the bill, he said he felt 
no need to be defensive about his 
commitment to civil rights. 

This bill promoted minority 
hirings and raised the ceiling on the 
amount for which employers can be 
held liable should they be convicted 
of discrimination or harassment. But 
best of all — and this was the 
undeniably politically palatable thing 
about the bill — it explicitly avoided 
quotas as a measurement of good 
hiring practices. 

Everyone who believes in equal 
opportunity should have been happy 
about the bill, right? After all, 
President Bush and his party have 
succeeded in courting wealthy 

From the Left

minorities during the last two years, 
largely because President Bush 
portrayed himself as a civil rights 
supporter during his bid for the Oval 

So what was wrong with the 1990 
package? Arthur Fletcher, appointed 
by President Bush to chair the Civil 
Rights Commission, considered it an 
"essential" correction of recent 
Supreme Court Rulings. Could it be 
that President Bush and 34 senators, 
mostly Republicans, want equal 
protection under law to remain a 
privilege for whites, instead of a 
guarantee for all? Apparently so. 

Case in point: there was Mr. Duke, 
praising the President's veto and 
hollering to no end about how the bill 
"would discriminate against qualified 
white Americans." He went on to 

denigrate Sen. Johnston .as "the 
consummate politician" — an odd 
insult from a man who holds an office 
himself, and only after a decade of 
trying — and for betraying "the great 
majority of the people of Louisiana 
and of this country." 

Read between the lines: the great 
white majority that must either fear 
competition from qualified minority 
and women applicants or be unable 
to cope with it. This majority was 
represented for the most part by 

However, it seems to me that Mr 
Duke is the exemplary Republican. 
He ran against Senator Johnston as 
one. Though he lost the race, he 
thoroughly whipped the GOP's 
endorsed candidate, who withdrew 
from the race at the last moment 

because he knew he had little popu 
backing. Mr. Duke supports evj 
plank on the Republican platfot 
especially those condemnii 
affirmative hiring practices a 
restricting social spending. 

Ostensibly Mr. Duke is 
supported by the GOP because 
past racial hatred and the racial 
motivated agenda he proposes tod 
Yet, when stripped of his unsavq 
political baggage, Duke differs in 
way from "good" Republicans, st 
as Sen. Jesse Helms, Sen. Ne 
Gingrich and yes, President Bu 
who continue to approve bills t 
line the pockets of the alrea 

When it came time last week 
Republicans to lay their cards on 
table, and to stand for progress i 
promote equality for all, they got 
and walked away from the table. W 
some luck, the Democrats may c 
the Republicans' bluff and win 1 
for everyone.

An open forum for NorthwesU 

Faculty not influence 
on student thought 


Associate Professor of English 
Louisiana Scholars' College 

Todd Martin, who has every right 
to deplore (if he wishes) the 
sentiments and conduct of his fellow 
students, should be more scrupulous 
than he has been in matter of fact 

Mr. Martin reports in his column 
of Oct. 13 that an "AIDS seminar" is 
required of al 1 seniors in the Louisiana 
Scholars' College. No such course 

The Senior Colloquium, which is 
indeed a required part of the College' s 
curriculum , is a sustained inquiry into 
"some issue of pressing contemporary 
concern, chosen collaboratively by 
the faculty of the College and by 
representatives of the graduating 
class." The topic for 1990-1991, 
"Disease and Social Policy," was 
determined only after all seniors had 
been invited to submit proposals, and 
only after extensivediscussion among 
both students and faculty. 

Though it is certainly the case that 
the AIDS epidemic comes 
prominently within the purview of 
the course, it is altogether misleading 
to represent "Disease and Social 
Policy" as an "AIDS seminar." Much 
of the work of the first semester 
involved topics which are historically 
— and medically — remote from 
AIDS, while texts include Plagues 
and Peoples, William McNeill's 
account of the shaping of culture by 
epidemic disease throughout human 
history; Illness as Metaphor, Susan 
Sontag's meditation on the language 
of cancer and heart disease; and 
Camus' novel of 1947, The Plague. 

Mr. Martin's larger point is that 
"there is not a single group at the 
Louisiana Scholars' College to 
represent the needs of the 
conservative students." Students in 
the College reach their own 
judgments, without faculty 
prompting, about the value of 
collaborative effort, and they are 
entirely capable of making 
themselves heard when they think 
there is reason to do so. 

One can only conclude from the 
absence of such organizations that 
"conservative students" — of whom 
doubtless there are many — have felt 
no need to speak in concert or to 
pursue a common agenda. Still, I 
know of no members of the faculty 

nor of any among our undergraduates 
who do not welcome a serious 
engagement with political ideas and 
social perspectives different from 
their own. 

For my part, I should be pleased to 
learn of students interested in 
exploring the foundations of their 
conservative convictions, and to 
participate with them in the reading 
of Burke, Coleridge, Carlyle, T.E. 
Hulme, T.S. Eliot, Allen Tate and 
others. I should be especially pleased 
if Mr. Martin were to join us. 

Gay student 'farther 
to right' than Martin 


I have found it necessary to write 
in response to Mr. Todd Martin's 
column. Mr. Martin evidenced an 
extremely anti-gay posture which I 
find extremely distasteful. 

I am gay. Why is this so? I don't 
know and neither does the psychiatric 
profession. I have racked my mind 
over it for years and I am still to find 
an answer. One thing is for sure, I 
haven't found an answer, but I have 
found pain. 

All of my life I have lived a most 
unhappy life, always repressing my 
inclinations. This situation has taken 
a heavy toll on me. On various 
occasions, I have been extremely 
close to suicide. 

In my attempts to be "normal" I 
have many times resorted to gay- 
baiting, ridiculing and have even 
come close to participating in gay- 
bashing during my younger days. 
Needless to say, the fear of discovery 
is ever beside me. So far, I have 
managed to elude any sexual action 
based upon my inclinations, but the 
desire is always there. 

Mr. Martin, perhaps you cannot 
understand the pain gay persons go 
through. We are derided, despised, 
hated, ridiculed, ostracized, exiled 
by family and reneged by society on 
a daily basis. Homosexuals can be 
discriminated against with impunity. 
This cannot be done to blacks or 
women any more, but homosexuals 
are still fair game. 

I am patriotic. I would give my 
life for the USA, but the armed forces 
would reject me if I were found out. 
Neither can I go into politics. Nor 
can I get an administrative 
appointment in the government. I 
would be rejected as a "security risk." 

Why is this so? Am I "evil" just 
for being what I am even if I hurt no 

one? Even if I circumscribe my 
activities to those afflicted as I am? I 
would understand why homosexuals 
could be labeled evil if gangs of roving 
homosexuals were raping and 
destroying the countryside. This is 
not the case. 

I love people. I love my family. 
Yet all of my feelings don't matter, 
for if I were to be discovered to be gay 
I would be hated and despised. Try, 
Mr. Martin, if you can, to imagine the 
anguish that must be the constant 
companion of most gay people. Is 
there no mercy, no compassion left in 
this world? 

Life is hard enough on gays 
without the flamesof prejudice being 
fanned. Mr. Martin, there is a need 
foreducation indeed. With education, 
perhaps people like me who must 
suffer in solitude will someday no 
longer have to do so. With education 
hatred, fear, discrimination and all 
other base passions might be 

In addition to all my previous 
complaints, I must add a final one. 
Why equate homosexuality to 
liberalism? I happen to be a staunch 
conservative. I can assure you that I 
am farther to the right than you are, 
Mr. Martin. 

I do, however, happen to believe 
in compassion and pity. Have you 
none? Do you now wonder why gays 
cling together so tightly in abject 
defiance of the society which inflicts 
such pains upon them? Let's foster 
greater education instead of 
ignorance, more compassion instead 
of bigotry. 

Once hatred and prejudice are 
gone, the pains homosexuals must 
now endure in silent solitude will go 
away. Perhaps then, Mr. Martin, you 
will realize that we are also human, 
with pains, feelings and aspiration. 

'Majority' silent in 
many LSC courses 


Senior, Creston 

Todd Martin's "From the Right" 
editorial in the Oct. 23 edition of the 
Current Sauce was so full of pitfalls, 
fallacies and misinformation that a 
comprehensive reply would surpass 
this paper's space limitations. 
Nevertheless, because Mr. Martin's 
voice is so prominent and 
authoritative, he deserves a reply and 
our students deserve the truth. 

What is this "liberal 
establishment?" Is this term to 

suggest that the establishment on this 
campus is liberal, or that there is a 
group of liberals on this campus who 
have "established" themselves as a 
coalition? Surely he means the latter, 
because the former is so obviously 
untrue. Indeed, the "establishment" 
on this campus is highly conservative. 

There is not — and never has been 
— a chapter of Earth First! on this 
campus, especially not at LSC. To 
even suggest in an offhand way that 
students at LSC go around putting 
spikes in trees to injure workers is 
pure and purposeful slander and 
totally unbecoming a journalist or a 
member of an editorial staff. The 
suggestion is an outright lie and 
there's no way around it. 

The Senior Colloquium is a 
required course of all seniors focusing 
on an issue of urgent modem concern . 
I^ast year, all juniors were asked to 
write proposals suggesting a topic for 
the Senior Colloquium. Only one 
proposal was written. Hence our 
discussion on AIDS. 

The class isn't, as Martin suggests, 
an example of how LSC dictates to 
the students what classes they must 
take. Every student had the 
opportunity for input. Yet the 
"conservative students ... in the 
majority" were silent. 

If AIDS were a predominantly 
homosexual disease, there would still 
be no reason to ignore it or remove a 
class about it from the curriculum. 
But AIDS is decidedly not a 
predominately homosexual disease. 
More heterosexuals are getting the 
HIV virus now than homosexuals. 

At the current rate, 90 percent of 
all AIDS cases will involve 
heterosexuals by the year 2000. The 
idea that AIDS is a gay disease is one 
of many misconceptions dealt with in 
Senior Colloquium. Mr. Martin, your 
ignorance suggests to me that you 
would benefit by enrolling in Senior 
Colloquium next semester. It could 
save your life. 

Mr. Martin, you seem to think that 
the "liberal" LSC faculty dictates 
opinions and viewpoints at LSC to 
the "non-liberal majority" of students. 
I am a senior at LSC and I speak with 
some authority when I categorically 
deny the following. 

I deny that the LSC faculty are 
militant liberals bent on dictating 
opinions to conservatives. One of the 
goals of education is to challenge 
students' preconceived notions about 
any number of issues. Certainly at 

LSC we learn to think critically 
regarding all stances and viewpoints 
and we learn to intellectually 
challenge many notions, including 
the notions you call "conservative" 
and "liberal." 

I deny that the majority of students 
at LSC are "moderates" or 
"conservatives." Perhaps there are 
people at LSC who voted for Bush or 
Duke, but students at LSC voice a 
rich variety of opinions and stances, 
many of them too complex and subtle 
to be lumped into crude political 
categories. For instance, many of us 
take the "liberal" stance on feminism 
and the "conservative" stance on the 
budget, the "liberal" stance on free 
speech and the "conservative" stance 
on abortion. You suffer from two- 
party system overload, Mr. Martin. 
Perhaps you should consider more 
complex labels. 

Perhaps it is true that the students 
you label "liberal" are more vocal 
than the students you label 
"moderate" or "conservative." This 
is neither the fault of the liberal" 
students nor of the LSC system. Let 
the "conservatives" blame themselves 
for their lack of involvement. LSC 
encourages student involvement in 
all aspects of campus life. 

Finally, Mr. Martin, I ask you to 
consider the morality involved in the 
abuse of power. So many things you 
say are so obviously fallacious that 
some people will laugh at your article 
and move on. But many will read 
your lies and misinformation and 
think what you say is true. 

Mr. Martin, please retract this 
column and apologize for all your 
lying. Please try to promote unity on 
campus, not hate between liberals 
and conservatives, between LSC and 
NSU. There are too many serious 
student problems on this campus for 
us to be strangled by parti sanism such 
as yours. 

Ross: KNWD-FM 
charges 'laughable' 


General Manager, KNWD 
Senior, Hammond 

Mr. Bunch, I'm not sure why you 
feel wronged by KNWD (and by 
myself in particular), but before you 
libel someone, I suggest you check 
your facts. 

How is KNWD to run public 
service announcements (PSAs) for 
organizations that do not submit 
them? Acc ording to the president of 

College Republicans, Todd Mail 
they have never submitted one 
KNWD. Also, we have not run PS 
for the Young Democrats, Stud 
Action League or Young Republic 
for Duke, all for the same reason, must have 

WecannotacceptPSAsbyphcj folder. Foi 
Please write your PSA out and eitl the Office 
deliver it by hand to the station Placement < 
drop it into campus mail. Therei •TheSti

with NSU students are given 
priority, followed by local, 
national, and internaliol i 
announcements. We also try 
program one s which encouraged 
responsibility — an activity ei|. 
American should perform. 

My personal "political bias" n4 1

The Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders 
Show Group will present a two-hour 
Broadway-style show entitled 
"America and Her Music," at 7:30 
p.m. Friday at the A.A. Fredericks 
Performing Arts Center. 

"We're very excited about having 
the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders to 
help us with our endowment 
program," said Greg Burke, executive 
director of the Northwestern Athletic 
Association. "This is not a pom-pon 
routine with cheerleader outfits, but a

performed by a select few of the 

The endowment program was 
developed last year to help offset the 
rising cost of athletic scholarships. 
Nearly half of Northwestern 's athletic 

$500,000 in scholarships. 

Only a limited number of seats are 
available for the show, which has 
been presented internationally in 
many countries, including Australia, 
West Germany and South Korea. 

"The response to this presentation 
has been outstanding so far," Burke 
said. "I can't stress enough how 
important it is to purchase tickets 
early so as not to miss a truly 
impressive performance by some very 
talented young ladies." 

In less than one week, more than 
20 percent of the available reserved 
seats have already been sold to faculty 
and staff of Northwestern. 

Cheerleaders not performing in 
the show will be available for 

autographs in the lobby before the 
show and during intermission. 

The full squad will be performing 
at 2 p.m. in Turpin Stadium during 
Saturday's Northwestern-Sam 
Houston State football game. 

Among the cheerleaders will be 
Northwestern graduate and 
Natchitoches native Michaela 
Sampite, daughter of Mayor Joe 

Tickets are $10 for reserved seats, 
$7 for general admission and $4 for 
genera] student admission.

emons fall out of conference race, lose 14-3 to NLU 


9f f miter 

ffhe only thing missing from 
u|,western State's tussle with 
^east Louisiana Saturday night 
;a n appearance by Rod Serling. 
phe Demons prolonged their 
ton-long entrapment in a strange 
Visional rife with turnovers and 
t-inflicted wounds as they 
Emitted seven turnovers on their 
, to a 14-3 loss to archrival NLU 
jalone Stadium Saturday night. 
Miy discussion of the Demons' 
nces of exiting this morbid zone 
w frivolous chatter. The loss 
esented the Demons' fourth in a 
and ensured the team of their 
„nd straight losing season, 
thwestern fell outof the Southland 
ference race as they are now 1-3 
LC play and 2-6 overall. NLU 

improved to 5-3 overall and 3- 1 in the 


By virtue of their win over the 
Demons and Southwest Texas' 19- 
1 7 win over McNeese Saturday night, 
the Indians moved into a three-way 
tie with Southwest Texas and 
McNeese atop the SLC standings. 

Throughout the game, the Demon 
offense tried to establish itself, but 
turnovers kept them from pinning 
down any rhythm. The Demons lost 
three fumbles to NLU, and 
quarterbacks Brad Brown and 
Andrew Roach each threw two 

"The name of the game was if we 
don't get a big play, we don't score- 
said Demon head coach Sam 
Goodwin. "We moved the ball, we 
hit a pass here and a pass there, but 
when we got around the 30, they had 

the muscle and we didn't' 

Liberal spots of the ball by officials 
contributed to the Demons' demise. 

Late in the third quarter, the 
Demons apparently stopped NLU 
tight end Randall Farrar just inside 
the Demon four on a third-and-five 
play from the six yard line. However, 
officials marked the ball inside the 
three. NLU elected to go for it on 
fourth-and-one, and Cisco Richard 
went outside for the first down. NLU 
quarterback Doug Pederson 
eventually hit Kenneth Burton on an 
1 1 -yard touchdown pass to put NLU 
up 14-3 with 14:22 left in the fourth 

"That was a key play because they 
got the ball back and ran three or four 
minutes off the clock before they 
scored, and it was 14-3 instead of 7- 
3," said Goodwin, alluding to the 

controversial official's spot. 

The Demons had seemingly halted 
that drive earlier when NLU kicker 
Rob Tallent's 35-yard field goal 
attempt bounced off the right upright. 
However, the Demons were penalized 
for being offside, and NLU received 
a fresh set of downs. 

Northwestern opened the game 
with a crisp 69-yard drive, but Brown 
and tailback Randy Wright muffed a 
tiandoff at the NLU eight yard line. 
The Indians capitalized on the fumble, 
marching 92 yards in 14 plays as 

Richard capped the effort with a two- 
yard scoring run to put NLU up 7-0 
with 6:31 left in the first quarter. 

The Demons put points on the 
board late in the first half. The Demon 
offense stalled, but kicker Chris 
Hamler nailed a personal best 47- 
yard field goal to pull Northwestern 
within 7-3 of NLU with 2:15 left 
before halftime. 

After Burton's touchdown put 
NLU up 14-3, the Demon offense 
regressed. The Demons turned the 
ball over on their last five possessions ,

Apple introduces the Macintosh Classic. 

Trying to stretch dollars when 
you're computer shopping doesn't mean 
you're willing to make sacrifices. 
That's why you should consider the new, affordable Macintosh® Classic® computer. 
It has everything you need — including a monitor, keyboard, mouse, 2 megabytes of 
RAM, and a 40-megabyte hard disk. Just plug everything in and the Macintosh Classic is ready 
to run, because the system software is already installed! And, thanks to the Macintosh 
computer's legendary' ease of use, you'll be up and running in no time. 

Like every Macintosh, the Classic can run thousands of available applications that all 
work in the same, consistent way — so once you've learned one program, you're well on your 
way to learning them all. And this is one cheap roommate that doesn't have trouble sharing. 
The Apple® SuperDrive— standard equipment with every Macintosh — reads from and 
writes to Macintosh, MS-DOS, OS/2, and .Apple II floppy disks, which means you can share 
information with someone who uses a different type of computer. 

See the Macintosh Classic for yourself. It'll change your mind about cheap roommates.

Student body elects Willis, Lukowski as Mr., Miss NSUfci c 

Pair to be presented during halftime at Saturday's football game 

Staff Writer 

Darryl Willis and Lisa Lukowski 
were elected Mr. and Miss NSU 1990 
by the student body in October. 

Lukowski is working to obtain a 
degree in elementary education and 
plans to attend graduate school — 
"possibly NSU," said Lukowski — to 
earn a master's degree in counseling. 

While her initial motivation for 
attending Northwestern was her 

selection as a yell leader, Lukowski 
was soon involved in other 
organizations includingPurpleJackets, 
Phi Mu fraternity and the Student 
Activities Board, of which she is now 

"Before I came to Northwetem, I 
didn't think I'd even stay after the first 
semester, but once I got here I never 
wanted to go home," Lukowski said. 
"I loved it that much." 

Willis has also served as president 

of the Student Activities Board, a job 
he admits was a lot more work than he 
had expected. 

"I saw how much could be done, 
and one of the things I learned was that 
I couldn't do it all," Willis said. 

In addition to his SAB 
responsibilities, he is also involved in 
Peer Leaders Coalition and Blue Key 
national honor fraternity in which he 
currently holds the position of 


As a senior in the Louisiana 
Scholars' College, Willis is working 
on his senior thesis, which deals with 
work he completed during an 
internship with Amoco Production 
Company for the past two years. 

Willis and Lukowski will be 
presented as Mr. and Miss NSU at the 
Nov. 3 football game at Turpin 

Mr., Miss NSU history dates back to 1956 

Darryl Willis 

Lisa Lukowski 

Elections full of 'contestations and debate' 

The honor of Mr. and Miss NSU 
was initiated by former students Ben 
Barron and Don Morgan and 
established by theStudent Government 
Association in 1956 when the school 
was Northwestern State College. 

According to Barron, "The most 
outstanding honor bestowed upon a 
studentatNorthwestem is to beelected 
Mr. or Miss NSC. The prerequisites to 
this honor are leadership, service, and 
friendliness." These were the 
qualifications for the honor when it 
began and while the basis has remained 
the same, the wording has changed in 
the 35 years since. 

In 1965, students were to consider 
which of the nominees showed strong 
character and exhibited service and 
leadership on campus and in the 
community. The wording changed yet 
again in 1978 as the honor entailed 
service to the university and 
community, leadership, scholarship 
and character. 

Barron said that, in developing the 
honor, he and Morgan believed it 
important for students "to look at their 
peers to identify who suited the 
qualifications." Until then, university 
honors bestowed upon students were 
determined by faculty or 
administration, but the Mr. and Miss 
NSC/NSU was for the students. 

Dr. Dick Brown, the first Mr. NSC, 
said that a primary election was held to 
select six finalists from all students 
nominated. During the infancy of the 
honor any student could nominate 
another student Brown said that unlike 
the procedure today, organizations 
were not the key to a student being 
placed on the ballot 

The honor was based "ostensibly 
on merit," said Brown, adding, "but 
popularity did play a role." 

Mr. and Miss NSC reigned at a ball 
held in their honor when the award 
was first begun but now they are 
presented at a home football game, 
ride in the Natchitoches Christmas 
Festival and deliver the prayer at the 
university's commencement each 

Steve Horton, Mr. NSU 1987, said 
that he received a great deal of 
recognition from faculty and 
administration at the university for 
several weeks after the election. 

But for Horton, along with others 
throughout the 34-year history of the 
university honor, the election process 
was subjectto contestations and debate. 
In the 1985 election for Miss NSU, a 
run-off between Darlene Brown and 
Cindy Ernst resulted in a one-vote 
margin victory for Brown. 

Controversy emerged when the 
voting results were published and 
Brown commented that, "When I heard 
that I had been selected as Miss NSU, 
the first thing that went through my 
mind was that I deserved it" 

Many students objected to having 
the number of votes made public. The 
election of 1987 created a stir on 
campus when the nomination process 
was contested on the grounds that 
students who had not received the 
required number of nominations were 
placed on ballot Nominations on the 
first ballot were recalled and reissued. 
The controversy continued when 
students who had received the 
nominations for the first ballot did not 
receive enough to be placed on the 
second. Theentirenominationprocess 
took one month. 

Even this year's election was laced 
with controversy as nominee Ken 
Gardnercontestedtheelection because 
the Shreveport campus, by its own 
accord, did not vote in the run-off 
election. Gardner's appeal was heard 
by the SGA Election Board which 
determined that a fair run-off election 
could not be held after the controversy 
surrounding the appeal. The Election 
Board decided to let the results stand.

Place in the contest receives 

Fred Fulton, director of student life. 
The policies were to go into effect 
Nov. 5. 

Fulton said several members of 
the Faculty Senate had expressed 
concern that the policies have "a 
chilling effect on the free expression 
of ideas on campus." 

Among the new regulations is a 
policy requiring all organizations to 
obtain university approval for any 
publicity before posting on campus. 
Another rule restricts demonstrations 
and assemblies to. assigned areas 
while a third limits the posting of 

flyers and handbills to university 
bulletin boards only. 

Tony Smith, professor of music 
and president of the Faculty Senate, 
said the senate decided to form a 
committee to address the possible 
free speech limitations that may be 
caused by the policies. After the 
committee met last week with 
President Alost and the university's 
lawyer, the decision was made to 
, postpone the implementation. 

"I was very pleased with the 
willingness of the university 
administration," said Smith. 

Smith also said the Senate will 
examine the policies, suggest changes 
in phrasing and then send 
recommendations for approval to 
PresidentRobert Alost. "We'regoing 
to look at it very calmly and see what 
we need to do," he said. 

In conjunction with the Faculty 
Senate's committee, the Student 
Government Association is also 
taking an active hand in the policy 
approval process. 

"Our Internal Affairs committee 
will evaluate the policies and and 
work with the Faculty Senate," said

"The policies are not to censor," 
said Robinson, " but to efficiently use 
a limited amount of space and also to 
control litter." 

According to Fulton, the purpose 
of the policies is to "protect the

Crew impressive 
in first competition 


Staff Writer 

Finishing third overall, 
Northwestern's Rowing Team 
defeated LouisianaStateUniversity's 
crew at the Louisiana Fall Novice 
Regatta held last week in Baton 

The men ' s novice eight-man team 
came out third in their competition. 
First and second were Tulane's A 
and B teams. Northwestern finished 
far ahead of LSU and the University 
of Alabama. 

The women's novice four-man 
team lost to Tulane only by four 
seconds in a tight race and defeated 
the other teams. The women's novice 
eight-man team finished first overall. 

Even though this was a novice 
event, there was a special varsity 
four-man competition between NSU 
and the top rival, Tulane. 
Northwestern lost by only seven 
seconds, but at the half mark the NSU 
boat was at least one length ahead of 

"This is significant because we 
only reached this point last year at the 
end of the year. This year, we did this 
well on the first game," said Mark 
Stephens, a varsity rower. 

"Tulane's crew is much older, and 

this is really impressive" that we can 
do this well against them already in 
the short time our program has been 
around," said Gene Jeffords, the crew 

On Saturday, the NSU Crew is 
sponsoring the Marathon 

"This is the first of its kind ever, 
it'sneverbeen tried before and we've 
gotten a lot of response to it," said 
Jeffords. "Since this is the first year, 
its still experimental." 

The race will begin at Melrose 
Plantation and will end at the Keyser 
Avenue bridge. Crews will be starting 
at 10 second intervals and will be 
racing against the clock rather than 
each other. The race covers the same 
distance a marathon covers — 26 
miles, 385 yards — and is expected to 
last approximately four hours. 

Participating in the race will be 25 
boats representing Tulane, SMU, 
Wichita State, Jacksonville 
University, Dallas Rowing Club, 
Island Rowing Club and others from 
California, New Mexico, Austin and 

"There have already been about 
20 universities triat have contacted us 
for next year," said Jeffords. "It's 
really getting off the ground."

Registrar should stop 
switching processes 

Everyone always moans and groans about registration. It' s the same gripes 
every semester: not enough variety in class selection, the lines are much too 
long and the fees are too expensive. But this semester there's something 
different — the registration process itself. 

Each semester (summer included) the procedure for registering undergoes 
major changes, all in the name of improvement. However, every time an 
alteration is made, new problems crop up. 

It' s adm irable to try and improve an often lengthy and drawn-out process, 
especially at a university "where students come first." But when new 
processes appear each semester, it only hinders students trying to make it 
through the legendary long lines while learning new rules each time around. 

Instead of attempting to make things easier in one fell swoop, Registrar 
Lynda Tabor should find a single registration process, stick with it for at least 
two or three semesters and improve upon it rather than begin anew each fall 
and spring. 

Have any students ever been consulted about the changing registration 
procedures? Why doesn't Tabor go before the Student Government Asso- 
ciation and ask the senate for heir opinions and suggestions. After all, 
students, not administrators, are the ones standing in the lines. 

It's futile to constandy change a process that could be, with continued 
work, quick and easy for all involved. The Registrar's Office should decide 
on one registration procedure and then try to make it as efficient as possible 
instead of unveiling a new ordeal every semester. 

Nightlife truly eclectic in the City of Light 

Oh, the splendor of Natchitoches 
at night. It is truly the City of Lights, 
putting the less significant counterpart 
— Paris — to shame. But this is only 
one aspect of our charmed hamlet. 
We are living in themidstof a cultural 
explosion ! There are culinary favors 
ranging from the Orient to Mexico to 
Italy and beyond. Equally as eclectic 
is the night life here. 

I find it a little disturbing that so 
few people are actually brave enough 
to venture further than their usual 
haunts. No need to fear the unknown 
because I am here to give you the 
guide — a Natchitoches Nightlife 
Baedicker's, if you will. 

I will begin with dividing the 
establishments into two groups: the 
dance bars and the more sedated 
conversation-oriented bar. These are 
not arranged in any order. 

We will begin with Changes, 
formerly the Dyv, formerly 
Metamorphosis, formerly The Party 
Club, formerly Gregory's, formerly 
the 'N' Zone. The layers of paint on 
the walls can be read as testimony of 
this place's history much as the layers 
of the Grand Canyon read as 
testimony to archeology. 

Ambiance: Kafkaesque (owing to 
a former name and the general 
character of the patronage). 


First year students, you'll love it 
It's loud, crowded and hot Drinks 
are moderately priced and there are 
often specials. MC Hammer and 
Vanilla Ice are musical staples here. 

Next we have Bodacious Country. 
This place definitely wins the bad 
name award. To truly describe my 
reticence at going to this place, let it 
suffice to say that I would have 
preferred any day to have gone to a 
Turkish prison. However, I was very 
surprised to see how nice it was. 

Ambiance: Bodacious. 

There was ample room and 
everyone was very friendly. I enjoyed 
the band — even though I'm not a 
country fan — and I was impressed 
by the variety they played. My 
recommendation is to disregard the 
stigma placed on this bar and give it 
a try. 

Finally of the three, we arrive at 
the Student Body. The popularity of 
this place waxes and wanes with 

introduction of new places, but it has 
remained for the most part the same. 

Ambiance: Meat Market. 

I have personally had many nice 
times in this pre-fab. The music is 
Top 40 and everyone usually tends to 
enjoy themselves here, sparing the 
gratuitous brawl. 

The Landing's little bar is very 
comfortable for a nice conversation. 
I find the best thing about this is that 
you can enjoy the food and service of 
the restaurant in the setting of a 
intimate bar. It's nice to steal away 
sometimes with an older crowd. 

The Cove Lounge at the Mariner' s 
is a dark room with expensive drinks. 
It's a nice place to go to feel like 
you're treating yourself, but don't be 

BobbiSox is also a quiet place to 
go to be with friends. I'm glad to see 
it the way it is now. I thought it was

Scholars' students 
aren't liberal puppets 


Senior, Hammond 

This is not a direct reply to Todd 
Martin's editorial, although the issue 
is certainly related. It seems that, 
lately, the crowd "From the Right" 
has been increasingly verbal in their 
dislike of the more liberal contingent. 
To horribly misquote Jack Nicholson, 
they have found a name for their pain, 
and it is Louisiana Scholars' College. 

There is a great deal of talk about 
the terrible abuse heaped upon the 
unfortunate conservatives at the 
agitative, homoerotic, dreadfully un- 
American LSC. These poor patriots 
must suffer the slings and arrows of 
an extremely vocal minority who dare 
to behave as if they're right! 

Well, without even getting into 
matters of right and wrong, I'd like to 
talk about being a"Scholar." Believe 
it or not, LSC is not completely a 
puppet of the Democratic party. 

The entire Scholars' agenda 
involves reading and absorbing a wide 
range of authors and ideas, from the 
stark, uncomfortable realism of 
Machiavelli's The Prince to the 
abstract, sexual poetry of Walt 
Whitman. There are certainly many 
world views in that could arise from 
such a curriculum. 

Why, then, are the right-wingers 
so thoroughly disregarded at this 
College? I'd like to simply deny this 
accusation, but I can predict the 
sarcastic laughter that would follow. 
So, I will add a condition to my 
response: the students and faculty of 
Louisiana Scholars' College do not 
hold anyone's world view in contempt 
as long as that world view has been 
seriously contemplated and 

Do you feel that your opinions are 
so weakly formed that they cannot 
take a few questions? Then you'd 
better not set foot in an LSC Texts 
class. I have known several 
determined conservatives who have 
stood up to the questions and come 
out of it stronger, and I respect them 

However, I have much less respect 
for someone who comes to college 
with beliefs wrapped in a tight scroll 
straight from hisorherparents, having 

never opened and looked at them; 
who, when continually invited to look 
at these views in the light of new 
information screams bloody murder 
that his or her unexamined views are 
being disregarded. 

So, if the question were instead, 
"Do LSC faculty and students 
disregard people who cling 
desperately to ignorance and 
shortsightedness?" the answer is 
"You betcha." 

Students at LSC are 
source of controversy 


Junior, Leesville 

I have been attending the Scholars' 
College for two and a half years now, 
so I think I can give a fair evaluation 
of what is occurring at Russell Hall. 
I have observed and heard much about 
the recent disturbance involving the 
"free-lance liberals" attending my 
school and it has disturbed me 

Recently I was on my way to 
Russell in order to type a paper for 
one of my classes. What I happened 
upon was a group of individuals (who 
we will call Sexual Freedom 
Advocates) who were conducting a 
"Coming Out of the Closet" party. 

In all fairness, the group did not 
consist entirely of homosexuals, as 
there were lesbians and straight 
people attending also. But 
nevertheless, I feel uncomfortable 
glances shot at me because I was not 
participating in the activities. 

Two things upset met about the 
situation: the meeting was held in 
Russell Hall (home of the Scholars' 
College) and I was made to feel like 
I was interrupting someone's good 
time by trying to do my homework. 

I do not condone homosexuality, I 
accept it as a fact of life, but when it 
interferes with my education, I tend 
to get upset 

If the SFA's are so secure in their 
sexuality, why don't they reserve a 
room in the Student Union to conduct 
their meetings? I would attend to 
hear their views, as I am confident 
enough in my heterosexuality to 
accept their views instead of trying to 
push my own on them. 

To counterbalance the SFA's, we 
have the faction of people known as 
the "homophobes." These anti-gay 

students seem to think that a good 
time consists of terrorizing the SFAs 
while loitering outside of Russell Hall. 
This "six pack and a baseball bat" 
mentality is no better than the 
homosexual attitude. People, wake 
up, smell the coffee and put the 
deodorant on. There is no right or 
wrong. What's to be accomplished 
here? Nothing but accepting each 
other's views. 

It hurts me to see people I've 
known for quite a while at each other' s 
throats. It puts other students and me 
in a predicament. We are made to 
feel that we must choose sides in this 
matter concerning our mutual friends. 

I don't know, maybe I'm too 
idealistic in my thinking that since 
I'm attending a liberal arts school 
everyone will respect my views and 
I'll respect theirs. Silly Jeremy, what 
an ignorant thought! 

So who is to blame? The faculty? 
Wrong answer. There is another 
misconception that the faculty at the 
college favors certain students over 
others. Wrong again. I am by no 
means the model student. But I must 
admit that I've been given ample 
opportunity to prove myself and 
failed. Throughout my struggles 
though, the staff has always, in my 
eyes, supported and encouraged me 
to do better. 

And from what I have witnessed, 
the same applies to every other student 
attending the college. It is too easy to 
single out the faculty as the culprit for 
the turmoil engulfing the school. 

I have heard of certain students 
complaining that professors try to 
push their beliefs on them. How 
unfair. It seems to me that every time 
there is a protest involving the 
Scholars' College students, such as 
the David Duke fiasco, it is the 
students who seek the professors' 
support, not vice-versa. Not one 
professor has ever tried to push 
anything on me except homework 
and class attendance. 

So where does the blame lie? It's 
buried deep among the students. It 
appears that vast numbers of the 
students in the college have this inane 
idea that they have to show their 
intelligence by being totally different 
than anyone else, much like bell- 
bottom pants, huh? 

Whether it is a publicity campaign 

to announce their homosexuality or 
anti-gay beliefs, these students stick 
out like plaid. Boy what a great way 
to recruit future students! 

This letter is not intended to anger 
one particular party, but to help all 
parties realize how small their 
complaints are when compared to 
what is best for the school. We have 
had enough negative publicity as it is. 
So put the guns down, people. 

I am proud to be in the Scholars' 
College. I enjoy the people and the 
staff. Yet I can't help but wonder if it 
will fold. It's been crumbling for a 
while. Hopefully there are still 
students who care. 

Ecological group is 


Junior, Lake Arthur 

I would like to address Todd 
Martin's article in the Oct. 23 edition 
ottheCurrent Sauce. I am attempting 
to organize an Earth First! chapter at 
Northwestern and Mr. Martin 
misrepresented the group. 

He stated that Earth First! 
supporters were notorious for their 
tree spiking and labeled them 
"ecoterrorists." I guess I missed 
something somewhere. In typical 
conservative style, he categorized a 
group he hadn't researched fully and 
used the handiest negative label. 

Earth First! has not supported tree 
spiking for quite some time, and even 
when it was sanctioned, members 
were to spray paint a red 'S' on the 
tree to warn workers from attempting 
to cut do wn the tree. I ha ve yet to read 
or hear of tree harvesting machinery 
exploding because of spiking. 

Finally, why don't we discuss this 
"ecoterrorist" label? If protection of 
over 2000-year-old sequoiaredwoods 
is a crime, if trying to protect what 
clean air, water and soil we have left 
is a crime, if expressing my opinion 
peacefully and in an educated, 
organized manner is a crime, then 
certainly I am a terrorist. I think I 
could label your obnoxious behavior 
as "slanderism" just as easily. 

Opinions subjective, 
says LSC student 


Sophomore, Baton Rouge 
There is an incredible number of 

problems with Todd Martin's column 
"From the Right." These are the four 
that alarmed me the most 

1. There is no such thing as an 
"unnecessary" degree of acceptance 
ofhomosexuality. Sexual preference 
is a private matter, and homosexuals 
differ in no way from others in society , 
except in the bedroom; they should 
be accepted as you or me. 

2. While the behavior of some, 
not all, of the speakers at the Scholars' 
College Senior Colloquium may not 
be excusable, I will point out that I 
understand they were provoked by 
very obvious snickers, facial 
expressions, whispered comments 
and other such equally unexcusable 
rudeness by several members of the 

About AIDS, it is a disease caused 
by irresponsible behavior, not a 
"lifestyle," and there is an astounding 
number of people of many college- 
educated people who choose to accept 
myths about AIDS rather than deal 
with the facts. AIDS can't be 
transmitted by kissing or having 
minor physical contact with an 
infected person. 

Some people believe that they do 
not have a chance of catching AIDS 
because they are not homosexual. 
Although at one time, AIDS was a 
predominately homosexual disease, 
it afflicts without discrimination, and 
as many heterosexuals contract it now 
as homosexuals. It is spreading at an 
alarming rate, and some experts even 
predict that by the end of the next ten 
years, half of the population will be 

Do you still not consider this 
epidemic serious enough for a class? 
I will also mention that the class is 
"Disease and Social Policy." 
Therefore, since hepatitis and breast 
cancer have caused very little social 
controversy, they have no place in 
the class. 

3. Why don't you who are so 
concerned about conservative 
representation on the campus start a 
group for such? Every liberal group 
on this campus was organized by 
students, not faculty; it is the 
conservative students' responsibility 
to organize themselves, not the 
faculty's. Only the students are to 
blame if there isn't a group to 
adequately represent them.

porum covers racial, sexual stereotypes 


iff Writer 

Stereotyping was the topic of 
jjjjcussion at last week's Campus 
pjrum. sponsored by the Student 
ivernment Association. 
•Whether stereotypes are products 
f a person's environment or 
jcperiences, they do affect that 
rson's relationships with other 
,ple," said Oscar George, SGA 
^nator-at-large and coordinator of 
^ Forum. 

George invited three students to 
form a panel to represent a few of the 
most typically stereotyped groups. 
Sophomore David Herrel represented 
l^mosexuals, senior Butch Poteet 
fgpresented the Greeks, and junior 
l^onard Williams represented Afro- 

Americans. The lack of a female 
representative was immediately 
noted, and George apologized for the 

George began the discussion by 
asking the panel and audience to 
describe both negative and positive 
stereotypes of the three groups 
represented. Many people had 
problems with this because 
stereotypes have long been viewed as 

The causes of stereotypes appear 
to be different for the groups. Racial 
stereotypes "come from culture," said 
Williams. "The unfortunate thing is 
that it's understood that we're (Afro- 
Americans) going to be stereotyped 
or discriminated against." 

Herrel said that for homosexuals, 

low visibility in society and practices 
that are widely believed to be taboo 
have created negative stereotypes. 
He also said that stereotypes about 
homosexuals are directly related to 
those about male-female 
relationships, where the woman is 
submissive and the man is in control . 

Past experiences can also form 
stereotypes, according to Poteet, who 
used the movie Animal House as an 
example of the negative image that 
fraternities have held for so long. 

"The Greek system will not last 
much longerif this image continues," 
Poteet said. "Outrageous insurance 
rates and administrative actions 
within college systems based in this 
stereotype will ultimately hurt the 


One of the main questions about 
stereotypes is why they retain a 
foothold in society. According to 
senior Wayne Self, "the attraction of 
stereotypes is the convenience." Self 
admitted that he often based his 
judgments on a person's appearance. 
"These appearances fit with a certain 
reaction in my mind and prompt my 
actions towards that person," he said. 

Another question was the role of 
the media in propagating stereotypes. 
Many of the audience members felt 
that the media encourages the 
negative views that society has of 
minority and special-interest groups.
